The project has ensured that the prior investment in barley breeding at the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) Horsham, Victoria (VIC) has not been lost in the transition to Barley Breeding Australia (BBA)... Germplasm from the project has demonstrated widespread adaptation across southern Australia, despite initial selection being conducted in a relatively small geographic area... Hindmarsh was not at a stage to be included in this project and has been lost, although some doubled haploid (DH) lines derived from the use of these parents were evaluated in the final year of this project with 20 lines progressing to the BBA nodes...
