Research Project: Developing FHB Resistant Durum Wheat Varieties for Montana

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-024-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 15, 2020
End Date: May 14, 2023

The objectives of this research are: 1) use traditional breeding methods to provide durum wheat varieties with enhanced FHB resistance to growers in the Montana and 2) use genomic approaches to improve and optimize breeding for FHB resistance.

The researcher will conduct traditional and molecular breeding methods to improve FHB resistance in soft winet wheat for the state of Montana.
