Research Project: Developing FHB Resistant Wheat and Barley Cultivars

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-50-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 soft winter wheat varieties with enhanced FHB resistance to growers in Maryland 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 winter wheat for the state of Maryland.
