The prospect of wheat varieties carrying drought tolerance genes is exciting news for northern NSW grain grower Geoff O'Neill, of "Llano", Bellata... The ARC Centre of Plant Energy Biology at Australian National University has identified genes which influence how plants cope under moisture stress... The property receives an annual average rainfall of 590mm, and although it falls predominantly in summer, the most useful rain arrives during the winter months...

Drought tolerance genes to provide spring protection.. The ARC Centre of Plant Energy Biology at Australian National University has identified genes which influence how plants cope under moisture stress... "In years when the rainfall outlook is marginal, or our subsoil moisture is not ideal, having varieties with the ability to tolerate moisture stress will give us a lot more confidence to go ahead and plant."..

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...
