Sydh Sjögren, Lucas, 2023. A look into stem rust resistance breeding. First cycle, G2E. Uppsala: SLU, Dept. of Plant Breeding (from 130101)



Wheat is one of the largest food commodities globally, but the cultivation of wheat faces many challenges. Among these is the stem rust disease, which historically has caused mass starvation and misery. This thesis explores the stem
rust disease in wheat, and the plant breeding for the potential of resistance to stem rust in the future. As well as challenges in the practical, political and social aspects that lengthen the road to progress. The purpose of the thesis is to spread awareness and knowledge about the subject of plant breeding and the spread of high-threat races of stem rust.
