Research Project: Development of Scab Resistant Wheat Cultivars for Kansas Project Number: 0500-00053-003-33
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Apr 21, 2011
End Date: Apr 20, 2015

Objective:
Develop hard red and hard white winter wheat cultivars adapted for Kansas with improved resistance to scab.

Approach:
1) test existing local cultivars for resistance, 2) test advanced breeding lines for resistance, 3) test exotic germplasm lines for resistance, 4) test the Hard Winter Wheat (Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota) Scab Nursery for reaction to scab, and 5) incorporate new sources of scab resistance into the Kansas wheat breeding program.
