    • Epidemiological Considerations of Yellow Rust Disease
    • 1.  Conducive environmental conditions & climate change; 2.  Genetic similarity of Mega-cultivar with yellow rust resistant (withYr9 and Yr27) and the susceptibility of local cultivars (e.g. Turkey=Gerek, Iran= Sardari, Morocco= Achtar,…); 3.  Wind borne and other means of transportation factors; 4.  Overlapping/continuous cropping seasons/systems; 5.  Widespread of alternate host and wheat wild relatives.

    • 12   Alternate Hosts for Stripe/Yellow Rust in Wheat are widely Spread
    • Emergence of a New Race of Stripe/Yellow Rust in Wheat due to Climate Change in West & Central Asia , 2009/2010 Ø  Serious outbreak of yellow rust on wheat in the West and Central Asia in 2009/2010 season; Ø Due to an average higher temperature in winter (4-5%), Yellow rust has been serious in in the 2009/10 Iraq, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan and Morocco, as well as Syria, and is a cause for concern in both Pakistan and India with serious losses occurring last season.
    • Widespread Yellow Rust Infestation in 2009/2010 15   Ø Race analysis confirmed that epidemic caused by new aggressive race which is virulent on the widely used Yr-gene Yr27; Ø This race was detected in more than 90% of identified physiological races using Yr differential sets at ICARDA; Ø Breeding germplasm evaluated at ICARDA headquarters in Syria against the new race identified high level of resistance to the new race;

    • The Need for Setting a Disease Surveillance Short to Long Term Strategy for Coping with Stripe/Yellow Rust in Wheat 17
    • Elements of Stripe Rust Strategy
    • 19  Organized  by  ICARDA,  BGRI,  CIMMYT,  FAO,  IFAD  and    AARINENA    
    • Based on the outcome of the International Wheat Stripe Rust Symposium,   Elements of the Strategy were developed to develop durable resistance to yellow rust and reduce wheat stripe/yellow rust infestation in wheat. Elements of Yellow Rust Strategy
    • Elements of the Strategy to address wheat stripe rust disease Ø Surveillance and information exchange within and between countries; Ø Basic epidemiological research of stripe rust including beter understanding of alternate hosts; Ø  Early warning and early reaction including planning, monitoring, awareness, and preparedness to rapidly deliver appropriate seeds and fungicides where they are needed to arrest the spread of wheat rust diseases; Ø  Developing capacities and skills in national research and educational institutions, extension services, and at the farm level to develop effective strategies for managing rust diseases; Ø Research to utilize germplasm for new sources of resistance and for developing improved varieties with durable resistance to the emerging pathotypes of stripe rust.  
    • Approaching Stripe Rust as a Social Disease Ø Stripe rust does not respect national borders and “Rust does not Sleep”; Ø The rusts including stripe rust are ‘social diseases’; Ø The fight against rust requires good neighbors, partner working together and networking; Ø The role of policy makers and global leadership is crucial if we are to take a significant step forward in minimizing the impacts of stripe rust; Ø Requires building a cooperative attitude for information sharing, the mutual sharing of risk analyses, and trust at both regional and international levels.
    • The Need for Developing National Action Plans Ø A multi-faceted approach is needed by countries to combat wheat rusts. Ø Disease monitoring and immediate action to combat new rust pathotypes through the use of fungicides Ø Reducing the cropping of susceptible mega-cultivars across vast wheat growing areas is perhaps the best insurance policy against widespread rust damage
    • Reducing the impact of dependence on narrow range of varieties Ø   Diversified cropping of wheat varieties (DW & BW); Ø Use of non-race specific durable resistance genes; Ø Maintenance breeding as short-term strategy; Ø Better understanding of genetic basis of resistance of current cultivars and candidate advanced lines; Ø Search and utilization of new sources of resistance from land races and wild relatives.
    • Coordinated Effective Seed Production System Ø Developing a clear approach to seed multiplication and farmer engagement in the evaluation of new and diverse varieties; Ø Strengthening NARS in capacity development; Ø To establish fast-track variety release systems; Ø Participatory demonstration and accelerated seed multiplication of newly released wheat resistant varieties; Ø Fast replacement of existing vulnerable commercial varieties.

    • Conclusion Ø  The only way we can cope with the continuous threat of Stripe/Yellow Rust is to ensure durable resistance through effective partnership and networking; Ø  Partnership and cooperation is needed : §  Across countries; §  Across institutions; §  Across disciplines involving wheat pathologists, breeders, biotechnologists; agronomists and seed multiplication experts; §  Across the research for development continuum involving researchers, extension agents, seed producers and most important farmers; Ø  We should always remember that ……
    • Ø  The  diverse  impacts  of  climate  change   on  the  durabilty  of  stripe  rust  disease   resistance  need  to  be  considered  at   national,  regional    and  international   research    and  development  levels.
