Barley with genetically unique sources of adaptation to the low rainfall environments has been evaluated using lines from the International Centre for Agricultural Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA)... Barley lines from ICARDA have shown potential for the improvement of adaptation, with adaptive features derived from wild barley and primitive barley landraces, and selection for yield and associated adaptive traits in drought prone environments with soils of low fertility... The germplasm and information gathered in this project will benefit industry since the project has had a focus on the improvement of adaptation as related to yield and physical grain quality...
