Catalogue: GRDC Updates
CSIRO has a long track record of making major on-going investment into the genetic improvement of wheat varieties and their agronomy to ensure they fit the target requirements for both the main wheat belt and the High Rainfall Zones of Australia... Underpinning the development of the traits provided to Australian breeders are a series of basic technologies that we are applying to our work... We outline the state of current research efforts supported by public funds (CSIRO, GRDC) with particular emphasis being given to developments that we believe will assist plant breeders in Australian breeding companies to deliver new high quality, well adapted productive wheats that have the ability to counter major constraint factors...

Breakthrough may provide climate-tailored wheat.. The scientists used specially designed natural-light-controlled environmental field facilities to grow two pairs of sister lines of wheat contrasting in vigorous growth and tillering to see how predicted future climates are likely to influence the genetic traits that wheat breeders have been selecting for... Professor Siddique has recently discussed the results with breeders from the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA), and would like to screen Australian wheat genotypes using the natural light controlled environmental facilities so breeders have better access to knowledge about the best parental genotypes to select and develop wheat varieties that thrive under hostile climatic conditions...
