To reduce the cost of combining traits, molecular markers associated with the genes controlling trait expression have been identified... Breeding lines evaluated under DAQ00175 demonstrated that the new germplasm can alleviate more barley production issues than the previous germplasm or introductions from other parts of Australia... Rather than repeat the outline of breeding activities applied under DAQ00110, information about genes and traits in the new germplasm resource is presented...

Dr Mehmet Cakir, Senior Research Fellow at Murdoch University, WA, will conduct and co-ordinate research evaluating Russian wheat aphid resistance in wheat and barley, thanks to a five year GRDC grant... Russian wheat aphid can destroy up to 70 per cent of a wheat crop and more than that in barley... The project will evaluate resistance, develop resistant wheat and barley varieties to biotypes of Russian wheat aphid and finally identify molecular markers for resistance so that continuous breeding for Russian wheat aphid is possible in Australia," Dr Cakir said.

Research was undertaken within the project and published in scientific journals to contribute to the management of important diseases, such as crown rot (CR) in wheat and spot form of net blotch (SFNB) in barley... The project provided disease screening capability to the National Variety Trials (NVT) and plant breeders to assist with the development of disease resistant cereals and to provide robust disease resistance ratings for industry... In summary the following were produced within the project: 11 scientific publications...

Researcher's Name: Professor Hans Lambers Organisation: The University of Western Australia Email: hans.lambers@uwa.edu.au Phone: 0864887381 Fax: 0864881108 Project Code: UWA00118 Contract Start: 30/6/2008 Contract End: 30/12/2012.. The barley germplasm project at the University of Western Australia has been providing substantial services to barley breeding programs and pathology projects through information and communication, introduction, evaluation, long-term storage, research and dispatch of barley germplasm... The evaluation and multiplication includes new introductions each season...

Given low-fertility of Australian soils and high fertiliser prices, it is clear that sustainable, low-input grain production requires cultivars that are efficient in acquisition and utilisation of nutrients, particularly nitrogen and phosphorus as the most critical nutrients in most paddocks... Potential for increasing nutrient efficiency in Australian wheat and barley germplasm will be assessed in this project via large-scale field screening of promising genotypes for nitrogen-use efficiency at a number of locations spanning a range in climate and soil conditions..... Plant pre-breeders are laying the foundation for more nitrogen-efficient varieties of wheat and barley < Keep browsing..
