breeding wheat

Catalogue: Ground Cover
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)...

The loss to the wheat industry from these two nematode species has been estimated at $AU47 million/year for the northern region and $123 million for all Australia, based on average wheat production and price of $AUD239/tonne over a 10-year period to 2008 (Murray and Brennan 2010)... In order to obtain better sources of resistance to P. thornei we have screened two collections of wheat landraces from that area... We have also found resistance to P. thornei in a collection of wheat landraces made in in the early 1930's (Sheedy and Thompson 2009)...
