Research Project: Genetic Characterization and Selection for Fusarium Head Blight Resistance in Durum Wheat

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-028-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 1, 2020
End Date: May 31, 2023

The objectives of this research are: 1) use traditional breeding methods to provide durum with introgressed FHB resistance to breeders in the growing region and 2) use genomic approaches to improve and optimize breeding for FHB resistance in durum.

The researcher will conduct traditional and molecular breeding methods to improve FHB resistance in durum varieties for growers in the region.
