Stripe rust in wheat is the most problematic disease damaging the produce severely in wheat growing regions. In this paper findings in recent past related to yellow rust with reference to their application in the management of disease have been debated. In this regard various aspects of breeding for resistance were focused. Pathogen has adopted under the changed climatic scenario brings and disease is observed in the regions where it did not exist earlier. Rising temperatures has increased the irregularity and concentration of precipitation, causing the spread and severity of rust diseases. NB-LRR proteins are expected to play a substantial part in advanced agriculture where yield is the primary goal for screening. Biotechnology has revolutionized in biological sciences including Plant Pathology. Experts are studying the biochemical nature and the signals involved in, a plant's responses to pathogen attack and development of disease. Plant resistance genes are being engineered into plants to defend them from plant diseases.
