Twenty-five avirulent/virulent combinations (races) of leaf rust (Puccinia recondita) were identified on 12 near-isogenic Lr differential lines from 334 isolates in 1982 and on 19 races from 144 isolates in 1983 collected in a leaf rust survey conducted in Minnesota. Lines with genes Lr16 and Lr19 were resistant to all isolates, whereas lines with Lr9 and Lr24 were resistant to most isolates.
