Chapter synopsis: Rusts are feared diseases of wheat. Despite the many resources invested into genetics of rust resistance, the lack of durability of resistance in wheat and the availability of low-cost fungicides have led to widespread reliance on chemical control. This reliance is unsustainable in the long term and requires continued research in the management of wheat rusts. This chapter describes advances in wheat rust control. Critical concepts involved in studying the wheat rusts are pathogen and host genetics, host–pathogen interactions, epidemiology and management strategies. The overarching goal of research is to use collective knowledge of these aspects to achieve durable rust resistance through application in selection and breeding.
