Researchers go head-to-head with head loss

Plain text source: 
Researchers go head-to-head with head loss.. Barley 'head loss' had a bigger than usual effect on crop yields during Western Australia's recent weather-affected harvest, but the good news is that new research into the problem is starting to generate results... The project supervisor with DAFWA, Chengdao Li, said the research aimed to understand the head loss risk among commercially available varieties and advanced breeding lines; understand the molecular basis of head loss; and develop selection tools that breeding programs could use to breed new barley varieties with better head loss tolerance...
