The objectives of this research are: 1) use traditional and molecular breeding methods to improve FHB resistance in Ohio winter wheat cultivars, 2) field screen adapted spring wheat for FHB resistance, 3) use genomic selection to improve FHB resistance in hard winter wheat and 5) implement genomic selection for the northern soft winter wheat breeders.
The researcher will conduct traditional and molecular breeding methods to improve FHB resistance in soft winter wheat for the state of Ohio.
