Disease resistance is one of the major factors that can be improved to sustain yield potential in cultivated crops.

This book looks at disease resistance in wheat, concentrating on all the economically important diseases - their economic impact and geographical spread, breeding for resistance, pathogen variability, resistance mechanisms and recent advances made on resistance genes.
