Adapted superior genotypes will be used to develop segregating populations for selection and advancement of elite lines that combine FHB and other diseases resistances with desired agronomic and quality traits. Advanced and elite lines will be tested in multiple field trials in ND to identify FHB and other major diseases resistant genotypes that meet the desired adaptation, agronomic and quality criteria for cultivar release. Off-season nurseies in New Zealand (NZ), Puerto Rico, and Arizona will be used to accelerate the generation advance and seed increase for ND trials.
