We have a large collection of rusts here at theUSDA-ARS,  Cereal Rust 
Laboratory, in St. Paul, MN.  I would be happy to work with you in getting  leaf 
rust isolates (Puccinia recondita) that would work for your project.  However, we 
are going to need more information regarding the hosts that you are working 
with. If you would like to have more information regarding the CRL, please visit 
our web site: www.crl.umn.edu.

Good luck on your project.
