International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA) germplasm has the potential to contribute significantly to the development of new wheat cultivars for Australian cultivation... The proposed project will cooperate directly with the proposed "Information Coordination/Communication", "Germplasm Evaluation" projects and the "CIMMYT Germplasm Selection and Export" project to ensure that only that germplasm specifically identified for evaluation and utilization in Australia is efficiently sourced from CIMMYT, fully documented, grown in approved post-entry quarantine facilities according to AQIS Import Permit requirements, and upon release from quarantine seed will be provided to the.. The bread wheat industry in Australia will benefit directly from the success of this project through the earlier and more efficient identification and introduction of the CIMMYT/ICARDA germplasm of most interest to Australian breeding programs...

, some doubled haploid (DH) (e.g. Gladius/Hamam-4) and RIL (Attila-7/Qamar-8, Attila-7/Hamam-4), Annuello x Qamar-8, Wyalkatchem x Qamar-8 mapping populations comprising of parents with drought tolerance and high yield potential, RWA tolerance have also been produced... In the project, the project team identified wheat germplasm with significant abiotic stress tolerance, in particular drought and resistance to biotic stresses and insect pests... The project leveraged on existing research network established by ICARDA with INRA, Morocco, EIAR, Ethiopia and ARC, Sudan which made substantial contributions to the project outputs...

Genebank transfer from war zone praised.. Australia and the GRDC have been thanked for their efforts to safeguard ICARDA's unique genebank from civil conflict in Syria.. Australia has enjoyed a long and productive relationship with ICARDA that has also seen exchanges of scientists, germplasm and technical expertise, including the development work for the focused identification of germplasm strategy (FIGS) that radically improves the ability to search genebanks for specific traits...

Australia has enjoyed a long and productive relationship with ICARDA that has also seen exchanges of scientists, germplasm and technical expertise, including the development work for the focused identification of germplasm strategy (FIGS) that radically improves the ability to search genebanks for specific traits... Dr Du Fall says the relationship also reflects the many similarities between the environments and grain-growing challenges in Australia and northern Syria: "It makes sense to combine resources to generate outcomes that will benefit both Australian breeders and agricultural research in the dry areas," she says...

Barley with genetically unique sources of adaptation to the low rainfall environments has been evaluated using lines from the International Centre for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA)... Barley lines from ICARDA have shown potential for the improvement of adaptation, with adaptive features derived from wild barley and primitive barley landraces, and selection for yield and associated adaptive traits in drought prone environments with soils of low fertility... The germplasm and information gathered in this project will benefit industry since the project has had a focus on the improvement of adaptation as related to yield and physical grain quality...
