Enhancement of Oat Germplasm for Resistance/tolerance to Barley and Cereal Yellow Dwarf Virus Utilizing Marker-Assisted-Selection Breeding
Crop Production and Pest Control Research
Project Number: 5020-21220-013-07
Specific Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Sep 06, 2012
End Date: Aug 31, 2015
Introgress BYDV tolerance and resistance genes into oat genetic backgrounds and develop DNA markers linked to these tolerance/resistance loci to facilitate oat breeding.
This project will employ standard breeding practices, and molecular marker technology to develop oat lines with enhanced resistance/tolerance to BYDV.
