The stay-green phenotype has been successfully used to select for yield and yield stability of sorghum in the Australian northern cereal belt (Borrell et al. 2006) and shows promise for selection in wheat... Deep soil moisture was important for expression of the high-yielding, stay-green phenotype (Christopher et al. 2008)... Small increases in soil moisture extraction post anthesis lead to significant yield gain...

Barley genotypes vary genetically for the period they require from planting to flowering and maturity; and combining desirable genes that underlie the variations in phase development and flowering behaviour (phenology) always has and will continue to play a core role in breeding better adapted barley varieties for Australian growers... Breeding programs currently select inefficiently as large numbers of progeny are advanced through early generations, only to be culled later due to incorrect phenology... The ability to quantify the value of novel phenology traits in barley by simulating effects of allele combinations and sowing date on barley yield across diverse environment types using the crop simulation framework Agricultural..
