Research Project: Improving FHB Resistance in Barley and Wheat using Breeding and Genomics Methods

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-11-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 17, 2020
End Date: Jun 16, 2021

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

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