Research Project: Preparing Barley for FHB in California

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-37-G
Project Type: Grant

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

Objective:
The objectives of this research are: 1) used traditional and molecular breeding methods to improve FHB resistance in California malting barley cultivars and 2) field screen adapted malting barley lines exhibiting FHB resistance.

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