Research Project: Barley Pest Initiative - Ohio

Location: Plant Science Research

Project Number: 6070-22000-018-045-S
Project Type: Non-Assistance Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 1, 2021
End Date: May 31, 2026

Objective:
To develop management and genetic resistance strategies to mitigate or eliminate the economic impact of major barley pests in Ohio, in particular virus diseases, as well as Fusarium Head Blight, powdery mildew, net blotch, spot blotch, septoria and scald. Further, to keep barley a viable option for U.S. growers, and enhance value-added job generating enterprises in the U.S.

Approach:
Cooperator will assess barley germplasm and varieties from other breeding programs as well as develop new germplasm having resistance to barley diseases using traditional as well as genotypic technology.
