Research Project: Spring Wheat Breeding for Scab Resistance in South Dakota

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-004-46-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Apr 6, 2018
End Date: Apr 5, 2021

Document acreage of resistant varieties grown in South Dakota, screen for FHB resistance, and develop new breeding strategies to release FHB resistant hard red spring wheat varieties.

Conduct a variety survey and field days to determine common varieties grown, screen for FHB in an inoculated nursery, and use current technology to advance breeding strategies.
