Abstract

THE early observations of Ward1 and Stakman2 on wheat rusts (Puccinia recondita Rob. ex Desm. and P. graminis Pers.) resulted in the formation of the concept of the hypersensitive response of a resistant host plant to infection. This type of resistance is characterized by disorganization, browning and death (necrosis) of cells at the infection sites3,4.
