(1) Pyramid new major loci controlling resistance to FHB in different sources of resistance to FHB in hard winter wheat backgrounds. (2) Pyramid multiple FHB resistance genes in Hard Red Spring Wheat background.
(1) Progeny from selected families will be used to develop double haploid populations that will be characterized for FHB resistance and will be genotyped using available SNP genotyping services. (2) DH lines lines will be screened for FHB and genotyped using SNP markers.
