The objective of this research will be to evaluate the oat association mapping population for resistance to barley yellow dwarf virus (BYDV).
Hill plots for all 685 oat association mapping lines will be grown in replicated field plots along with spring and winter checks. The hill plots will be inoculated at the appropriate times with virus containing aphids. Plants within hills will be rated for BYDV symptoms at various times and data will be recorded. The data will be upload and checked prior to association analyses.Documents Grant with University of IL-Urbana.
