An international alliance to advance wheat breeding - known as CAIGE - may not be high in the consciousness of Australian grain growers, but it is delivering benefits by helping to deliver new varieties with better yields... The elite genetic material, sourced from CIMMYT and ICARDA's scanning of global diversity in wheat's genetic material, is fast-tracked into Australia's commercial gene pool as advanced breeding lines, targeting yield, disease resistance and stress tolerance... Breeding lines sourced through CAIGE are grown alongside local varieties in Australian environments, including at sites located across the WA grainbelt, to allow for differences in environmental conditions and seasonal risks...

CAIGE is the CIMMYT-Australia-ICARDA Germplasm Evaluation Program, which enables wheat germplasm to be imported under agreements with the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA)...

An international germplasm evaluation program that has been delivering elite bread wheat germplasm for developing advanced new Australian wheat varieties is to be expanded to include durum wheat and barley... The germplasm is imported through the GRDC's CAIGE project that tests the material in Australian yield and disease trials... Since CAIGE uses in-kind contributions from breeding companies to run the majority of field trials, Dr Dieters has been negotiating with the main barley-breeding companies to establish a similar system to test future shipments of ICARDA barley...

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)...
