DAFWA-TIAR -China Barley Collaboration

Plain text source: 
Soil acidity, salinity, waterlogging, drought and frost are key factors limiting barley growing areas and sustainability of production in Australia... Australian barley lacks genetic variation for tolerance to these stresses... The proposal focuses on (1) screening 1000 barley accessions for acid soil, drought, frost or salinity tolerance in China, (2) identification and characterization of new genes from the Chinese germplasm for abiotic stress tolerance, and (3) introduction and evaluation of 100 barley accessions in Australia...
