Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The project has identified genomic regions, developed germplasm (alternative dwarfing genes, leaf-rolling, greater leaf area) and established screening methodologies (longer coleoptiles, leaf area, transpiration efficiency) targeted to improving water-use efficiency and yield under drought... The project has confirmed and/or extended genetic variation for traits with potential for use in breeding for improved performance under drought, identified the nature of inheritance for some of these traits and underlying genetic control through quantitative trait loci (QTL), and released germplasm containing genes for traits not present within Australian breeding programs... The F1 progeny were assessed in seedling trays and produced leaf-one widths ranging between 2.8 and 7.6 millimetres (mm)...

Australia finished 2007 with nearly average rainfalls the timing of these events meant that many winter crops missed out on in-season falls By Rebecca Thyer When it comes to rain, timing is everything, something that many growers can attest to after missing out on crucial in-season rains last year, only to have them fall at harvest time... Dr David Jones, head of climate analysis at the Bureau of Meteorology's (BoM) National Climate Centre, says the irony of 2007 is that the year as a whole ended with almost average rainfalls across the eastern and southern states - it just fell at the wrong time. ".. Dr Jones says the dry conditions were not linked to the late onset of La Ni a, a weather event normally associated with increased rainfall during winter. "..

The trials offer the only direct comparison between lines from the two main global cereal and pulse breeding centres, CIMMYT and ICARDA.. The subsequent data and the seed resulting from this testing is crucial to the continuing development of Australian wheat, durum, barley and chickpea industries.. The CAIGE tour team 2015 hits the road: (from left) Dr Karim Ammar (Borlaug Global Rust Initiative), Dr Amer Dababat (CIMMYT), Dr Wuletaw Tadesse (ICARDA), Dr Suchismita Mondal (CIMMYT), Dr Hans Braun (Consortium Research Program on Wheat) and Professor Richard Trethowan (Plant Breeding Institute)...

Drought tolerance, visual agronomic traits and yields of these mutants will be evaluated under both stressed and non-stressed conditions... We have discovered that plants lacking a functional copy of the gene called SALI are more drought tolerant... We started investigating the SAL1 gene in the Australian wheat variety Chara...

The discovery of a gene that controls the way plants respond to drought could help lead researchers to the "holy grail" for many farmers: a new drought-tolerant, high-performing line of wheat... Researchers at the ARC Centre of Plant Energy Biology, Australian National University, made the significant discovery several years ago of a protein that controls the amount of a signal between chloroplast and nucleus of a plant that regulates its response to drought... Arun Yadav, who works with Prof. Pogson, discovered that wheat plants have up to seven copies of the gene, and each may have slightly different functions related to drought tolerance and the production of the signal in different parts of the plant, like roots, seeds or leaves...
