The present study aimed to investigate the genetic behavior of leaf rust resistance in bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.), in a population of five parents and ten F 1 hybrids under field conditions with artificial inoculation. Wide variations among parents and their F 1 hybrids were detected for the five characters under study, i.e. incubation period (IP), disease severity (DS), infection response (IR), average co infection (ACI) and area under disease progress curve (AUDPC). The average means

The average means of criteria related to resistant varieties showed that Giza 168 and Sakha 93 wheat cultivars have good response for resistance as long time of incubation period, as well as little amount of disease severity, the same performance of both varieties for infection response, average co infection and AUDPC=
