This conference was called following the widespread occurrence of stem rust Race 15B in the wheat growing areas of the United States and Canada during the summer of 1950. Its purposes were to 1) summarize the information available on Race 15B, and the known sources of resistance that could be used in breeding resistant adapted varieties, 2) make plans for the dissemination of new information and breeding materials as they are development and 3) make plants to further strengthen the international cooperative program to control this disease in North America...."
