Fifty wheat samples collected from 11 different durum wheat landraces produced in the central district and villages of Diyarbakır province were used as study materials. Suspension, prepared as 352,000 spores per ml by using the spores composed of a mixture of yellow rust (Puccinia striiformis f. sp. tritici) species provided by the Field Crops Central Research Institute, was injected into plant tissue in the pre-earing stage during the 2004-2005 and 2005-2006 growing seasons. Of the 50 durum wheat landrace samples 15 used in the study were classified as resistant to yellow rust, 19 as semi-resistant and 14 as semi-susceptible. Moreover, it was also found that one sample from the Aşure landrace was in the susceptible group with the highest rust intensity of 61.68% while one sample from the Ruto landrace was found to be in the immune group with an intensity of 0%.
