Quarantine CIMMYT Bread Wheat Germplasm

Plain text source: 
International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) germplasm has the potential to contribute significantly to the development of new wheat cultivars for Australian cultivation... The proposed project will cooperate directly with the proposed "Information Coordination/Communication", "Germplasm Evaluation" projects and the "CIMMYT Germplasm Selection and Export" project to ensure that only that germplasm specifically identified for evaluation and utilization in Australia is efficiently sourced from CIMMYT, fully documented, grown in approved post-entry quarantine facilities according to AQIS Import Permit requirements, and upon release from quarantine seed will be provided to the.. The bread wheat industry in Australia will benefit directly from the success of this project through the earlier and more efficient identification and introduction of the CIMMYT/ICARDA germplasm of most interest to Australian breeding programs...
