Due to the field soil changes, high density planting, and straw-returning methods, wheat common root rot (spot blotch) and Fusarium crown rot (FCR) have become severe threatens to global wheat productions. Only a few wheat genotypes show moderate resistance to these root and crown rot fungal diseases, and the genetic determinants of wheat resistance to these two devastating diseases have been poorly understood. This review summarizes the recent progress of genetic studies on wheat resistance to
