Evaluation of wheat germplasm derived from Indian materials for specific traits of importance to the Australian cropping environment

Plain text source: 
The University of Sydney manages several collaborative programs with India funded through the Generation Challenge Program (GCP) and the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR)... The programs develop germplasm with stress and disease resistance specifically for India by crossing Australian and local germplasm with subsequent selection for key traits using a combination of molecular markers and phenotypic screening... The materials, derived using a combination of double haploids and traditional selection, have been developed at the Plant Breeding Institute and the seed sent to India for evaluation...
