Breeding tools to predict gene effects influencing adaptation and grain qua

Plain text source: 
Combinations of genes determine the classification of wheat into classes from Prime Hard to Feed,influence time of flowering from different sowing dates at different locations, determine disease resistance, and ultimately influence grain yield... Understanding the combinations of genes that produce elite varieties enables Australian wheat breeders to substantially accelerate the rate of genetic progress in breeding programs... Utilisation by breeders of the information generated is rapid...
