Research Project: Scab Research Projects and Development of Scab Resistant Soft Red Winter Wheat Varieties at the University of Illinois

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-08-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 8, 2020
End Date: Jun 7, 2021

Objective:
The objectives of this research are: 1) use traditional and molecular breeding methods to improve FHB resistance in Illinoise soft winter wheat cultivars, 2) field screen adapted winter wheat for FHB resistance and 3) develop faster and more efficient phenotyping methods for FHB.

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