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

Objective:
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.

Approach:
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.
