Accelerating the Development of FHB-Resistant Soft Red Winter Wheat Varieties


Project 1 - Development of Scab Resistant Soft Red Winter Wheat Varieties: Release high yielding, scab resistant SRW wheat varieties that are adapted to KY and the southern corn belt. Project 2 - Male Sterile Facilitated Recurrent Selection for FHB Resistance (MPI-5): The objective of this project is to advance male-sterile facilitated recurrent selection populations that have been developed to combine genes for FHB resistance from multiple sources in soft winter wheat backgrounds adapted to the eastern U.S. Project 3 - Coordinated Phenotyping of Uniform Nurseries and Official Variety Trials: Screen and Evaluate approx. 450 unique advanced breeding lines and released cultivars for FHB resistance.
