Research Project: Soft White and Club Wheat for Northwest Oregon

Location: Wheat Genetics, Quality Physiology and Disease Research

Project Number: 2090-21000-030-01
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Jun 26, 2009
End Date: Jun 25, 2014

Objective:
Enhance soft white and club wheat germplasm for traits that reduce production risk in Northeast Oregon, and for milling and baking quality traits that enhance the value of soft white and club wheat in the export market.

Approach:
Field trials of advanced breeding lines from the USDA-ARS wheat breeding project, located in Pullman, WA, will be established at four locations in NW Oregon. Those trials will be evaluated for agronomic characteristics, grain yield, and quality factors. In the greenhouse and laboratory, breeding lines will be evaluated for traits that are associated with enhanced production in hot, dry environments.
