breeder line

Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
The project will continue collaborative arrangements with the Department of Agriculture and Food WA lupin breeding program to supply seed of breeders' lines for early generation evaluation in SA and Victoria... Each year WA will supply new narrow-leafed lupin lines to SA and Victoria to allow early generation evaluation... Evaluation sites across lupin districts of SA and Victoria will be supported, culminating in identification and release of new lupin varieties with superior yield performance, quality and disease characteristics for grain growers in these States...

After a decade of GRDC supported research, progress is being made in understanding the causes of grain quality defects - pre-harvest sprouting, late-maturity alpha-amylase and black point - that regularly take the gloss off an otherwise profitable crop... Pre-harvest sprouting, late-maturity alpha-amylase and black point are grain quality defects controlled by independent genes, triggered by different weather conditions... Grain from the wheat grown in the screening program is collected and germination tested to establish the level of dormancy...
