Genetic analysis in barley suggests that the Rrs1 gene locus is a region that either hosts a suite of different scald resistance genes or numerous alleles of this gene exist in barley germplasm... Modern tools to identify desirable breeding traits are molecular markers that indicate the presence or absence of a gene that is responsible for the trait... Aligning the disease scores from each progeny line with its genetic fingerprint information revealed those fingerprint signals (molecular markers) that predict the resistance of a progeny plant most accurately...

The aim of the project was to clone the scald resistance gene Rrs1 from barley and identify more resistant barley germplasm that is not used by barley breeders... Results show that Rrs1 resides at a genome region hosting a suite of 10-14 similar genes that are candidates for resistance genes against different scald pathotypes... The aim of the research is to generate molecular tools that allow the identification of scald infection objectively (no subjective scoring) and significantly earlier than the appearance of leaf symptoms...

The introduction and maturation of next-generation sequencing technology provides an excellent opportunity to develop genome-wide molecular markers and genomic breeding tools for breeding next generation of barley varieties with improvement of productivity, adaptation and better marketability... The project will decode about 800 million genetic letters of barley chromosome 7H in about 8000 clones using next generation sequencing technology... The success of the project will enable breeders and pre-breeders to access the genomic sequence to dissect the genes on chromosome 7H for yield, adaptation, quality, biotic and abiotic stress tolerance and to develop diagnostic molecular markers and genomic breeding tools...

Faba beans are grown in two major regions in Australia, the Mediterranean-type environment of the Southern Region and the sub-tropical environment of northern New South Wales (NSW)... Recent surveys and trials have demonstrated that cercospora is now widely established throughout the Southern Region and can result in significant yield reduction... In both 2009 and 2010 a significant level of seed staining due to pea seedborne mosaic virus occurred and seed samples were assessed for incidence and severity of staining...

The project has ensured that the prior investment in barley breeding at the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) Horsham, Victoria (VIC) has not been lost in the transition to Barley Breeding Australia (BBA)... Germplasm from the project has demonstrated widespread adaptation across southern Australia, despite initial selection being conducted in a relatively small geographic area... Hindmarsh was not at a stage to be included in this project and has been lost, although some doubled haploid (DH) lines derived from the use of these parents were evaluated in the final year of this project with 20 lines progressing to the BBA nodes...

An international alliance to advance wheat breeding - known as CAIGE - may not be high in the consciousness of Australian grain growers, but it is delivering benefits by helping to deliver new varieties with better yields... The elite genetic material, sourced from CIMMYT and ICARDA's scanning of global diversity in wheat's genetic material, is fast-tracked into Australia's commercial gene pool as advanced breeding lines, targeting yield, disease resistance and stress tolerance... Breeding lines sourced through CAIGE are grown alongside local varieties in Australian environments, including at sites located across the WA grainbelt, to allow for differences in environmental conditions and seasonal risks...

KEYMESSAGES Herbicide tolerance varies widely between pasture legume species... A wide range of herbicide treatments was sprayed across 13 pasture varieties/lines which included four Medicago species (medics) and five species to be commercialised: Trigonella balansae, bladder clover, purple clover, Moroccan clover and the soon to be released Eastern star clover ( Trifolium dasyurum)... Herbicide treatments included post-sowing pre-emergent (PSPE) application of Spinnaker #and Dual Gold #. The post emergent (PE) treatments were applied at the 4-6 leaf stage on 10-11 July...

CAIGE is the CIMMYT-Australia-ICARDA Germplasm Evaluation Program, which enables wheat germplasm to be imported under agreements with the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) and the International Center for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA)... The elite genetic material, sourced from CIMMYT and ICARDA's scanning of global diversity in wheat's genetic material, is fast-tracked into Australia's commercial gene pool as advanced breeding lines, targeting yield, disease resistance and stress tolerance... Breeding lines sourced through CAIGE are grown alongside local varieties in Australian environments, including at sites located across the WA grainbelt, to allow for differences in environmental conditions and seasonal risks...
