The project will provide a disease screening facility for the Barley Breeding Australia (BBA) program based in South Australia with a particular focus on leaf scald but also including the net blotches and other pathogens... The project will also assist barley breeding programs by identifying novel and/or durable sources of resistance to foliar pathogens and incorporating those into elite lines where they can readily be used as parents in the mainstream breeding programs... The project also aims to help develop durum varieties with resistance to crown rot by identifying and developing useful germplasm using different donors of resistance and screening / breeding strategies...
