Research Project: Mapping Loci Conferring Resistance to FHB and DON Accumulation in Barley

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-004-15-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 2, 2016
End Date: May 1, 2021

Objective:
Identify and incorporate into barley cultivars genes that confer a high level of resistance to FHB and the accumulation of mycotoxins.

Approach:
1) determine the number, effect, and chromosomal position of FHB resistance loci in the select barley accession PI350725 (a two-rowed variety from the Tyrol in Austria) using the advanced backcross QTL method and 2) provide adapted FHB-resistant parental materials to barley improvement programs.
