Research Project: Genetic Dissection and Improvement of Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Resistance in Durum Wheat

Location: Crop Production and Protection

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-139-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 1, 2022
End Date: Apr 30, 2026

Develop durum wheat germplasm with improved Fusarium head blight resistance that can adapt to the Northern Great Plains.

Recurrent phenotypic selection and genomics-assisted recurrent selection will be used to improve Fusarium head blight resistance in a durum wheat pre-breeding population.
