IWWIP IMPACT ON WHEAT PRODUCTION IN UZBEKISTAN
Yellow rust resistance in IWWIP germplasm in Uzbekistan in 2016. IWWIP lines represented much lesser severity than released and pipeline varieties. Area planted with yellow rust resistant winter wheat varieties developed through international collaboration and analysis of fungicide cost in 2016 and potential savings to farmers from growing just one variety in 2017.
