The definition of drought is going to change dependent on your specific environment... By combining different parents of known good performance under drought, and then yield testing in the target environment we have been able to select varieties such as Gladius that perform exceptionally well under most drought conditions encountered by growers...

There is simply nothing in the domesticated gene pool that can provide in-between flowering times... During 2014, a breakthrough was made in Dr Nelson's laboratory by a 22-year-old GRDC undergraduate honours student, Candy Taylor, who at the time was completing the fourth year of a genetics and breeding undergraduate course at the University of WA... "In early-flowering plants that do not require vernalisation to flower, the FTc1 (flowering-time) gene was expressed at high levels at all times and throughout the plant," Ms Taylor says...
