" Integrating New Technologies to Improve Yield Stability and Enhance Genetic Gain in Barley and Sorghum Breeding Programs.. In this project we propose to extend the results of an earlier project DAQ00076 which investigated ways of integrating new technologies into breeding plant breeding programs to generate step change in the rate of genetic gain... The work to date has received global attention with Pioneer Hi-Bred International Inc supporting a large study based on our integrated approach in sorghum in Australia and preparing to refund the activity......

Other impacts and conflicts of interest may have a long term effect on the success of implementing genomics and I will address these issues the dairy industry and policy makers will need to consider if it is to be successful... The Australian dairy industry has seen vast genetic improvements over the last 70 years with the introduction of Artificial Insemination (AI), herd testing, semen processing, sire proofing, introduction of breeding values for traits and now the evolution of genomic technology... It is imperative that any data collected from herd recording figures, workability data or confirmation evaluation, needs to follow a clear and definite path to the final users in order for service providers to evaluate in an appropriate and prompt manner delivering accurate and valuable information to the farming industry to allow farmers to make more informed decisions to drive their business into the future...

The project has ensured that the prior investment in barley breeding at the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) Horsham, Victoria (VIC) has not been lost in the transition to Barley Breeding Australia (BBA)... Germplasm from the project has demonstrated widespread adaptation across southern Australia, despite initial selection being conducted in a relatively small geographic area... Hindmarsh was not at a stage to be included in this project and has been lost, although some doubled haploid (DH) lines derived from the use of these parents were evaluated in the final year of this project with 20 lines progressing to the BBA nodes...
