The work will characterise PUE of a diverse range of wheat and barley varieties in the field to identify germplasm with consistently high PUE... The aim of the project is to assess the level of genetic variation in response to phosphorus fertiliser in wheat and barley and to provide plant breeders with the information and genetic tools to improve phosphorus use efficiency of cereals... There are three outputs from this project: (i) it will characterise the response to phosphorus among a large number of varieties of wheat and barley; (ii) it will provide detailed analysis of the reasons why varieties show different response to phosphorus fertiliser and how this relates to their phosphorus use effciency and (iii) through genetic studies it will aim to provide plant breeders with tools to make the selection for phosphorus use effciency easier...

The work will characterise PUE of a diverse range of wheat and barley varieties in the field to identify germplasm with consistently high PUE... The naturally-low levels of soil phosphorus over large areas of Australia?s cropping zone necessitate regular applications of phosphorus fertiliser to sustain productivity...

Foliar diseases of barley frequently cause significant losses in both yield and grain quality in the Northern Region (NR) and in other barley growing areas of Australia... Use of the NAM will enhance training and capacity building for postgraduate students studying barley genetics and pathology.A structured NAM population will be generated using reference varieties crossed with existing elite lines from the NR barley germplasm pool and exotic lines identified from the new barley foliar pathogens project (DAQ00187)... Whole genome profiling of lines using new marker platforms will identify the presence of closely-linked markers for new genes and better markers for existing genes involved in the expression of disease resistance...
