Summary in the original language of the document

Target audience: public authorities, breeders, researchers

EPrint Type:Practice tool
What problem does the tool address?:Common bunt (Tilletia caries) is a damaging fungal disease, affecting the spikes and seeds, which especially
impacts organic farming. Winter wheat is most frequently affected. Several races of the fungus have been
identified, each of which has different pathogenicity.
What solution does the tool offer?:Given the limited options to treat seeds under organic farming conditions, it is desirable to increase the
resistance of organic crop plants to seed-transmitted diseases. Several race-specific, effective resistance genes to
bunt have been identified (Hoffmann and Metzger 1976, Goates 2012). It would be possible to achieve broadly
effective resistance by pyramiding several Bt resistance genes.
