The overall goal of our project is to develop two-rowed malting barley cultivars with enhanced resistance to Fusarium Head Blight (FHB) and reduced mycotoxin accumulation.
Our process of developing improved malting barley varieties is continuous, with lines in all stages of the breeding pipeline each year. Our breeding scheme includes two seasons of off-season nurseries and genomic selection for DON accumulation and other traits in the F5 generation.
