Research Project: Accelerating the Development of FHB-Resistant Soft Red Winter Wheat Varieties

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-42-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 1, 2020
End Date: May 31, 2021

Objective:
The objectives of this research are: 1) use traditional breeding methods to provide soft winter wheat varieties with enhanced FHB resistance to growers in the Kentucky 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 Kentucky.
