Crown rot of wheat, caused by Fusarium pseudograminearum
(Fp), is a serious disease threat across the Australian wheat belt. Currently control of this disease relies on farming practices (e.g. crop rotation) and planting of less susceptible cultivars. Partial resistance has been identified in a small number of wheat lines, such as 2–49 and Sunco, but the mechanisms of resistance shown by these lines have not been identified.
