Developing 6- and 2-rowed Malting Barley Cultivars with Enhanced FHB Resistance and Reduced DON Accumulation
Project Number: 0500-00053-003-69
Start Date: May 03, 2014
End Date: May 02, 2016
1) continued development and screening of six- and two-rowed barley lines in our breeding program for reduced FHB and DON, 2) grow the NABSEN at our Osnabrock, ND location, and 3) collect FHB and DON data on cultivars and advanced breeding lines that can be used by growers for making decisions on which cultivar(s) to grow.
Grow the North American Barley Scab Evaluation Nursery (NABSEN) at one location, grow and evaluate advanced breeding lines from the University of Minnesota and Busch Agricultural Resources (BAR) breeding programs in yield trial experiments at seven sites in ND and eastern MT, and collect data on cultivars and advanced breeding lines grown in FHB nurseries in Langdon and Osnabrock.
