Suitable and safe herbicides are limited in pulses, especially for the post emergent control of broadleaf weeds, with many registered herbicides only having a narrow safety margin... The project will use ethyl methane sulfonate (EMS) mutagenesis techniques, as used in pasture legumes, lentils and lupins previously in Australia, on PBA Flash lentil and Nura faba bean to develop lines with tolerance to at least one new novel herbicide, in each crop, offering increased weed control options... The spray chamber method while effective for PE is slow, expensive and is not ideally suited to post sowing pre-emergent treatments other methods are being explored to meet the criteria...

Target traits include bacterial blight resistance of field peas, pod drop tolerance in lentils and heat stress tolerance in field peas and faba beans... Outputs will include bacterial blight race specific and non-specific resistant parent lines and genetic inheritance information in field pea, pod drop resistance screening methodology, tolerant parent lines with genetic inheritance information in lentil and heat stress tolerant screening methodology, tolerant material and genetic inheritance information in field peas and faba beans... The research project aims to produce parental lines with new sources of genetic resistance to bacterial blight race 6 in field pea, pod drop in lentil and heat stress in field pea and faba bean...

A new chapter opens in weed control.. The discovery of naturally occurring herbicide resistance in the germplasm of several major pulses may remove one of the Australian industry's main production constraints... With the development of a rapid test to detect herbicide tolerance in seedlings, researchers soon found chickpea, lentil, field pea and faba bean plants with levels of innate herbicide tolerance high enough to be able to develop further through breeding...

The ultimate goal of the Lentil Genome Sequencing Consortium is to provide the most comprehensive foundation possible for the future development of DNA-based breeding tools and technologies - including marker-assisted selection - for use by pulse breeders, including Pulse Breeding Australia (PBA)... What the consortium wants to do for the lentil is provide a route to systematically understand the genetic basis of diversity in lentil populations and its impacts on plant characteristics in the paddock... At the stage, the genome project can provide essential tools for use in pulse germplasm enhancement, including molecular markers aimed at specific traits of interest such as disease resistance, abiotic stress tolerance and herbicide tolerance...
