Research Project: Development of Scab Resistant Wheat Varieties for Michigan and the Great Lakes Region

Location: National Programs

Project Number: 0500-00053-004-078-G
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: May 2, 2021
End Date: May 1, 2023

The objectives of this research are: 1) use traditional breeding methods to provide soft winter wheat varieties with enhanced FHB resistance to growers in Michigan and 2) use genomic approaches to improve and optimize breeding for FHB resistance.

The researcher will conduct traditional and molecular breeding methods to improve FHB resistance in soft winter wheat for the state of Michigan.
