The background elite varieties to be used were selected by the wheat breeding companies and represent most of the bread wheat growing regions of Australia... The project has two components; one based in the University of Sydney will focus on wheats adapted to the Northern Region and will use a strategy of Marker Assisted Recurrent Selection (MARS)... The second component based in SARDI will focus on wheats adapted to southern and western Australia, will also use molecular markers but will focus on more conventional crossing strategies...
