Genetic and phenological basis of head loss in malting barley

Plain text source: 
Head loss in barley can cause major economic losses in the coast regions of Esperance in WA or the lower Eyre and Yorke Peninsulas of SA. Head loss is climatically dependent and controlled by strong genetics and environmental interaction... On-site screening for head loss is critical for the results relevant to barley industry... The outputs of the project will provide genetic materials and molecular tools for the barley breeders to develop new malting barley varieties with minimum risk of head loss for barley growers...
