Research Project: Development of Hard Spring Wheat Cultivars Resistant to Fusarium Head Blight

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-004-87-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 5, 2020
End Date: May 4, 2021

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

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