Technical Abstract: More frequent extreme weather events and water scarcity across the U.S. make it more expensive and difficult to sustain crop production. Therefore, effective breeding of climate resilient crop cultivars combined with adaptation of crop production systems to better cope with the challenges of future climate change are of key importance. High-throughput genotyping and phenotyping technologies offer a new approach to examine G x E x M interactions for developing climate resilient crop cultivars with enhanced production and quality as a means to mitigate the effects of a changing climate.
