UQ00049 - Rapid introgression of crown rot resistance into hexaploid wheat

Plain text source: 
This new genetic material will be used by breeding companies to develop new wheat varieties that will be able to maintain yield in the presence of the disease... New sources of tolerance developed will be progressively released to breeding companies for development of improved wheat varieties which have effective tolerance to crown rot, and that are able to maintain yield in the presence of the disease... The primary output of the project will be new sources of tolerance to crown rot, that combine genes from two or more existing sources, within genetic backgrounds that are adapted to the main wheat growing regions of Australia...
