" GRDC Crop Updates 23-24 February 2011, Western Region, Perth WA, Michael Robertson 17 September 2013 Michael Robertson, CSIRO, talks about Pros & cons of dry seeding to counter variable seasonal breaks...

Growers differ in approach to dry seeding, from a planned approach with set percentage of the program to be dry sown, through to an aggressive approach where a large percentage of the program could be dry sown if opening rains are late...

While the approach has enabled population structure to be accounted for, it perhaps imposes a limitation on the effectiveness of using this approach in cereals within breeding programs... The result of the LD study was to confirm that significant levels of LD could be detected within germplasm collections, and that this LD extended over sufficient distance that it could be effectively assayed using currently available marker technologies such as SSRs and DArT... While the methodology used in performing this analysis is radically different to that used in conventional QTL mapping in bi-parental crosses, the fact that identical QTL locations have been derived lends support to the conclusion that association mapping is a viable approach in these clearly defined populations...
