Dr Phil Davies from SARDI checks the performance of field pea plants in a trial at the University of Adelaide's Waite campus in South Australia... "The heat-stress tolerance is due to several genes dispersed across the genome - a situation that makes it difficult to breed all genes into elite cultivars without the genes becoming separated during the genetic recombination that occurs during sexual reproduction," Dr Davies says... Dr Davies has found there is sufficient interest in the trait to pursue molecular markers, which may provide a viable way to rapidly select for these heat-tolerance genes using a cost-effective DNA typing technology favoured by breeders...

The major grain legume grown in Australia is narrow-leafed lupins (NLL), but being a recently domesticated crop it has many agronomic limitations that have led to the dramatic fall of its use over the last few years... Our major focus is to decipher as much of the gene space sequence as possible and to use this valuable sequence information to greatly accelerate marker discovery and identification of candidate genes of interest for lupin crop improvement... Our approach has a heavy emphasis on molecular marker discovery and the development of a dense genetic map to help make the sequence information useful and lead to pre-breeding/breeding outcomes for the grains industry...

Image of four people crouching in a young lentil crop.. Based on their lentil crop harvests, the Schillings run several vertically integrated businesses... In 2011, Mr Schilling extended his farm's involvement in the lentil industry by assisting South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) and University of Adelaide scientists, led by Larn McMurray, with their search for lentil germplasm with tolerance to new herbicides...

Pact to protect wheat from climate shocks.. "People living in some of the world's most vulnerable areas could see entire seasonal food supplies wiped out with increasing frequency if we don't quickly boost wheat's resilience to heatwaves and more extreme periods of drought," Dr Reynolds says... Dr Hans Braun, director of CIMMYT's Global Wheat Program, says the meeting was a good example of the private and public sectors coming together to solve a global problem: "We've laid the foundations for research that will help farmers and many of the world's most marginalised people living in some of the most difficult environmental conditions," he says. "..

Delegates at a meeting of the Heat and Drought Wheat Improvement Consortium have agreed on a breeding strategy for protecting staple food crops from environmental shocks..

New narrow-leafed lupin varieties will be developed through a flexible breeding program incorporating a broad genetic base equipped to respond to the changing needs of growers and to new opportunities provided by market research and product development... Breeding will continue for major lupin producing environments in Western Australia as well as including novel crossing for supply and evaluation of appropriate material in key environments in eastern Australia... Strong linkages will be maintained with pre-breeding and agronomy in DAFWA, CSIRO and UWA, food research at various Australian universities, while national end-use and market signals from Australian industry organisations will be used to steer inclusion of genetic traits in the program where appropriate...

Australia's wheat breeding is geared to tackle long-term agronomic challenges like yield, drought, frost, disease resistance and salinity, and to deliver commercial performing varieties to Australia's wheat growers... GRDC's investment in pre-breeding research is about discovering and validating novel genes and traits, and delivering these traits non-exclusively to commercial wheat breeding programs... The focus is on key traits that will make the greatest difference to Australian wheat growers, like improved tolerance to drought, frost and salinity, and disease resistance (for example, rust, crown rot and nematodes)...
