Five loblolly pine selections with varying levels of fusiform rust resistance were used in cross pollination studies. The resulting full-sib families were evaluated for resistance by artificial inoculation with Cronartium fusiforme. Each of these families was more rust resistant than open-pollinated progenies of either parent. In addition, as resistance in the parents increased, so did that of the resulting progeny. Forest Sci. 22:267-268.
