GREAT LAKES TAR SPOT INITIATIVE: MOBILIZING RESISTANCE IN MAIZE

Investigators
Thompson, A.
Institutions
Michigan State University
Start date
2020
End date
2023
Objective
Our proposed work has three main goals:1) Map and validate resistance to tar spot by screening diverse temperate maize germplasm across affected locations in multiple years2) Generate new resistant material for breeders by backcrossing resistant varieties into elite germplasm and testing subsequent doubled haploid lines3) Establish resources (doubled haploid germplasm, marker data, and new quantitative genetics and remote sensing approaches) for future research
