Project Number: 5366-21000-029-01-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: May 26, 2009
End Date: Feb 28, 2014
Evaluate the reaction of advanced barley breeding lines from various public and private breeding programs to established races of barley stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis f.sp. hordei) endemic in the Central Valley of California.
Barley breeders will submit their advanced lines to UCDavis researchers, who will plant the accessions in the Davis, California area or other Central Valley locations where a natural epidemic of barley stripe rust can be expected. Data collected will be returned to the participating breeders and ARS distribution to interested parties. Documents SCA with UC Davis.
