Research Project: Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) Resistance for Montana Barley

Location: Crop Production and Protection

Project Number: 0500-00053-005-080-G
Project Type: Grant

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

1) Continue crossing resistant material into lines adapted to Montana; screen progeny in different environments. 2) Continue to pyramid resistant lines and screen for resistance in the field for genotype mapping. 3) Phenotype resistance in four 2-row NAM families. 4) Collect and identify Fusarium species in the Montana disease complex.

We will perform crosses of previously identified resistance with Montana adapted lines using standard methods and screen/phenotype in an Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) nursery in Sidney, MT. We will collect isolates from FHB affected fields and identify them to species using established methodologies.
