ALIEN CHROMOSOME ENGINEERING AND THE DEPLOYMENT OF NOVEL SOURCES OF RESISTANCE TO FUSARIUM HEAD BLIGHT IN WHEAT
Project Number: 0500-00053-003-50
Start Date: Jun 25, 2012
End Date: Jun 24, 2016
Develop wheat-Leymus compensating recombinant lines with small alien segments that still retain the FHB resistance gene for deployment and gene pyramiding for FHB disease control.
Develop wheat-Lymus chromosome recombinant lines with FHB resistance. Determine the effect of T7AL.7Lr#1S FHB resistance on DON accumulation. Pre-breed novel T7AL.7Lr#1S FHB resistance ino U.S. adapted wheat to verify resistance.
