Creating superior crown rot resistance in wheat is the aim of Queensland scientists at the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF), based at the Leslie Research Facility in Toowoomba... Scientists from DAFF showcased their crown rot resistance research to national and international scientists, and representatives from Australia's Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC), at Toowoomba in October, 2012... The field tour was held at the Leslie Research Facility and the DAFF Wellcamp site, followed by a two-day laboratory workshop to demonstrate the department's leading scientific methods...

Material will help breed locally-adapted wheat.. Australian wheat breeders have been presented with a smorgasbord of genetic material which will allow them to breed new varieties with flowering times specifically adapted to different production areas... Dr Trevaskis said the new wheat lines were being evaluated by the CSIRO this year in field trials at locations including Merredin...

The future of Australian wheat varieties is being determined, in part, by pre-breeding researchers who are successfully targeting some highly complex quality and production traits By Gio Braidotti Delivering improved wheat varieties to growers, and higher-quality grain to an increasingly diverse marketplace, is a process limited by the level of ingenuity that can be applied in the very first stage - pre-breeding... This intensive area of R&D activity not only identifies sources of novel genetic traits but also provides new techniques to transfer those traits to crop varieties... Pre-breeders are also aware of the need to help growers meet quality classifications that can earn valuable premiums, and also develop grains with new quality and health traits, such as biofortification and functional foods...
