Preferred Abstract (Original): 

A collection of barley landraces from the Fertile Crescent was tested for powdery mildew  resistance. Two types of resistance were identified. Twelve accessions showed low disease  severity with no macroscopically visible necrosis. In additional 19 accessions, segregation  was observed, with individual plants showing resistance based on reduction of infection  associated with plant necrosis. These individual resistant plants were selected and selfed for future studies.
