Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 26, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta -Tuesday, 24. H8RAID streak mosaic research lution to aid winter production DR. T. G. ATKINSON .ethbridge Research Station i major problem in the prp- rtion of winter wheat in tthcrn Alberta will be over- lie if Lethbridge Research .lion scientists are success- in developing varieties re- tant to wheat streak mosaic.

This hybrid is also jhly resistant to the wheat rl mite. It is fully fertile, and wheat-like in ovHii habit although its head d kernels show some grass aract eristics.

'armer stockmen who use ste-sown cereals for fall pas- ire must also avoid the use of r o p s susceptible to wheat break mosaic.

Resistant varieties would prevent the serious losses sometimes caused by wheat streak mosaic and thereby give winter wheat growers more flexibility in their cropping practices.
