Research Project: EVALUATING AND VALIDATING FHB HOST RESISTANCE GENES PYRAMIDED IN SPRING WHEAT Project Number: 0500-00053-003-24
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Apr 13, 2010
End Date: Apr 12, 2013

Objective:
Evaluate and validate enhanced resistant recombinant inbred lines (RILs) for type I and II FHB resistance.

Approach:
Assess 113 F9 RILs for resitance to intitial infection, FHB spread and DON accumulation in the field. Evaluate agronomic traits in the field. Assess the resistance spectrum of the pyramided lines using a mixture of 3-ADON, 15-ADON and NIV producers of G. zeae in the greenhouse. Chracterize an entire RIL population with known simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers, which are associated with types 1 and II resistance.
