Sources of resistance in durum wheat and its wild relatives to Russian wheat aphid (Hemiptea: Aphididae)
Russian wheat aphid (RWA), Diuraphis noxia (Kurdjumov), is a serious pest of cereals in many parts of the world, particularly in dry areas. As limited resistance sources to this pest were previously identified in durum wheat, 144 accessions of Aegilops spp. and 72 advanced durum wheat lines were evaluated for resistance to RWA in the field and in the plastic house at Tel Hadya, Syria. Ten Aegilops accessions and 14 advanced durum wheat lines showed good level of resistance to RWA. The best five lines were studied for categories of resistance, and the results showed that antibiosis, antixenosis and tolerance are involved in various combinations
