Final Report: USQ00008 - Durum Industry Development - Molecular marker assisted selection for crown rot resistance

Plain text source: 
In the project, we crossed a number of durum varieties to bread wheat lines, which are partially resistant to CR. Subsequent generations from these crosses were tested for their resistance to the disease in infected fields... The project has demonstrated that partial CR disease resistance present in hexaploid wheat lines can be transferred into durum wheats... The aim of the project was to transfer genetic loci linked to CR resistance in bread wheats, into durum wheats and to test the performance of derived lines in field trials...
