The development of rust resistant varieties is an important factor in increasing dry bean yields in South Brazil. The bean rust fungus is a highly specialized pathogen consisting of distinct physiologic races. Race B11 has been the most virulent race described presently. The research reported in this thesis involved the standardization of uniform testing conditions, evaluation of varieties to determine sources of resistance to Brazilian race B11 and inheritance of resistance to this race.
