Research Project: Improvement of Oat Germplasm for Resistance/Tolerance to Barley and Cereal Yellow Dwarf Virus Utilizing Marker-Assisted-Selection Breeding

Location: Crop Production and Pest Control Research

Project Number: 5020-21220-019-09-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 1, 2017
End Date: Aug 31, 2019

Objective:
Introgress BYDV tolerance and resistance genes into oat genetic backgrounds and develop DNA markers linked to these tolerance/resistance loci to facilitate oat breeding.

Approach:
This project will employ standard breeding practices, and molecular marker technology to develop oat lines with enhanced resistance/tolerance to BYDV.
