AN INTEGRATED APPROACH FOR DEVELOPING SCAB RESISTANT BARLEY
Project Number: 0500-00053-002-97
Start Date: May 03, 2009
End Date: May 02, 2013
Objectives of the project fall under Objectives 1 and 2 of the Barley CP, develop new barley varieties with enhanced resistance to FHB and lower DON; and discover and determine the function of host genes that can reduce disease and/or DON levels in barley.
Assist others in the Coordinated Project by growing the North American Barley Scab Evaluation Nursery (NABSEN) at one location, growing and evaluating advanced breeding lines from the University of Minnesota and Busch Agricultural Resources, Inc., (BARI) breeding programs in yield trial experiments at seven sites in ND and eastern MT, collecting data on cultivars and advanced breeding lines grown in FHB nurseries in Langdon and Osnabrock; and collecting data on lines from the ICARDA barley breeding in one FHB nursery.
Two validation populations will be genotyped using a set of molecular markers agreed upon.
