Research Project: Developing FHB Resistant Wheat Cultivars for Idaho and the Western U.S.

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-35-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 15, 2020
End Date: May 14, 2021

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

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