Research Project: Development of FHB Resistant Wheat Genotypes Adapted to the Gulf Coast and use of DHs to Expedite Variety Development

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-02-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 1, 2020
End Date: May 31, 2021

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

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