Combating wheat rust disease: artificial inoculation in a research field in Izmir, Turkey

Experimental trials at ICARDA’s principal research station at Tel Hadya have been harvested, and data are being analyzed. Several genotypes combine high yield potential with broad-spectrum disease resistance, drought tolerance, good grain quality and other traits. Nurseries and other material for the coming planting season has been selected, tested for phytosanitary parameters, and packed, ready for shipment to national research centers worldwide.

Tel Hadya will continue to remain the main site for on-station trials, but increasingly, will be complemented by trials at national research stations in Egypt, Ethiopia, India, Iran, Lebanon,  Morocco, Turkey, Uzbekistan and other countries. In the 2012-13 season, the 950-hectare research farm in Tel Hadya will be complemented by on-station and on-farm trials in countries across North Africa, Central, West and South Asia.
