Research Project: Breeding Spring Wheat for Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Resistance in South Dakota

Location: Crop Production and Protection

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-095-G
Project Type: Grant

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

The objective of this research is to help ensure widespread adoption of highly productive and Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) resistant Hard Red Spring Wheat varieties in South Dakota and the region.

Procedures used to meet the objective include established Fusarium head blight screening methods to document resistance levels within segregating populations, experimental breeding lines, and released varieties. Data accumulated will be used for selection within and among pre-released materials while data gathered on released varieties will be shared with stakeholders.
