Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-004-97-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 13, 2020
End Date: May 12, 2021

Objective:
The objectives of this research are: 1) use traditional and molecular breeding methods to improve FHB resistance in Minnesota spring wheat cultivars and 2) field screen adapted spring wheat for FHB resistance.

Approach:
The researcher will conduct traditional and molecular breeding methods to improve FHB resistance in spring wheat for the state of Minnesota.
