Research Project: Evaluation and Implementation of Breeding Methods to Improve FHB Resistant in Barley

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-004-70-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 13, 2019
End Date: May 12, 2021

Objective:
The objectives of this research are: 1) use traditional breeding methods to provide malting barley varieties with enhanced FHB resistance to growers in the Midwest and 2) use genomic approaches to improve and optimize breeding for FHB resistance.

Approach:
The researcher will conduct traditional and molecular breeding methods to improve FHB resistance in barley for the Midwest.
