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