A team of geneticists including Dr Lee Hickey and Dr Mark Dieters from the Queensland Alliance for Agriculture and Food Innovation - a joint venture between the University of Queensland (UQ) and the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) - have been using speed breeding as part of a strategy to create a strain of 'super wheat'... Queensland DAFF's program aims to develop more elite lines in more varieties with enhanced genetic resistance and tolerance, using diverse sources of RLN resistance, to improve the level and durability of the resistant varieties released to the grains industry...
