head loss risk

Categorised under:

Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
Head loss in barley can cause major economic losses in the coast regions of Esperance in WA or the lower Eyre and Yorke Peninsulas of SA. Head loss is climatically dependent and controlled by strong genetics and environmental interaction... On-site screening for head loss is critical for the results relevant to barley industry... The outputs of the project will provide genetic materials and molecular tools for the barley breeders to develop new malting barley varieties with minimum risk of head loss for barley growers...

Researchers go head-to-head with head loss.. Barley 'head loss' had a bigger than usual effect on crop yields during Western Australia's recent weather-affected harvest, but the good news is that new research into the problem is starting to generate results... The project supervisor with DAFWA, Chengdao Li, said the research aimed to understand the head loss risk among commercially available varieties and advanced breeding lines; understand the molecular basis of head loss; and develop selection tools that breeding programs could use to breed new barley varieties with better head loss tolerance...
