Barley Breeding Australia (BBA)-West operated collaboratively as a part of a national barley breeding strategy to address industry needs in Western Australian (WA) and south eastern (SE) Australian regions with neutral to acid soils... The resulting malting varieties (Baudin and Hamelin ) represented significant improvements in malting quality and there has been strong demand for these varieties in the international marketplace... The germplasm and knowledge developed in this project has provided, and will continue to provide, strong support to the ongoing development of commercially successful, targeted-to-market, elite malting and feed barley varieties by commercial barley breeding entities...

The GRDC-supported National Mungbean Improvement Program is making gains with new and better varieties.. In comparison to White Gold - the highest-yielding commercial variety - 45/52-21 has yielded, overall, two per cent higher, ranging from equal yield to four per cent better, depending on the region... Subjective and objective quality tests over three years have shown 3511-32 to have superior seed quality compared to other lines in the dull-seed-coat category...

Mitika , released in 2005, is a dwarf high yielding milling variety with improved disease resistance compared to Echidna and Possum ... In a one year study, Yallara had significantly higher avenanthramide concentration compared to Mitika... Two Septoria nurseries, one at Manjimup and the other at Mt. Barker, were developed with artificial inoculation using infected oat straw...

Demand for domestic and export milling oat continues to increase, with all the major milling companies increasing production by about 10%... The literature review resulted in funding from the SA Grains Industry Trust (SAGIT) and SARDI to proceed with the project 'Enhancing the grain yield and quality of oat under water deficits'... The NOBP releases improved grain oat varieties for WA, SA, VIC and southern NSW. Increased gross margins for high quality productive oat varieties, coupled with agronomic advantages as a break crop in rotations, make oat production more favourable than in the past...

The GCTV report presents the latest on superior disease resistance in peanuts, which is being bred in to new lines thanks to the Australian Peanut Genetic Improvement Program, a collaborative effort involving the GRDC, PCA and DAFF Queensland... 83.979: Pat Harden: It used to take up to 15 years to get a peanut 87.29: variety through and into commercial reality... 195.919: Pat Harden: So if you get rain or you get a cyclone come 198.699: down the coast as just happened recently, you have got less issues if you cannot get 204.079: in the field to spray, or if you are a few days late or a week late, then the resistance 207.98: of the variety will help carry it through...

The objective of the project was to explore methods to integrate new marker technologies, simulation modelling and statistics with the aim of increasing the rate of genetic gain in breeding programs focused on complex traits such as grain yield... To the end the main areas of research were 1) developing the capacity to detect quantitative trait loci (QTL) in breeding populations and 2) using simulation modelling to enhance plant breeders' understanding of complex traits and genotype x environment (GxE)... The objective of the project was to explore ways of helping crop improvement programs use new technologies to improve progress for complex traits...

Part of the project aims to characterise, assess, and simulate the suitability of current genetics for earlier sowing in Australian farming systems across a range of environments using crop management tools such as APSIM... The PhD project aims to identify how molecular changes within the mitochondria allow plants to continue growth at a range of temperatures... Education and research are critical in developing the 'science push' for sorghum as a health promoting food - this knowledge needs to be interpreted and disseminated to the Australian grains industry (farmers, producers), food products developers, marketers and key government organisations y t i c a p a C & s l l i k S g n i d l i u B ...

The project has increased industry knowledge and identified DNA markers linked to genes controlling wheat grain quality in a range of environments for adoption by breeding programs to improve the efficiency of selecting new improved germplasm... The outcomes of the project form the basis whereby future R&D activities can build on discoveries made, progress further knowledge and develop new R&D initiatives generated in this project... Since both traits were measured in the Ajana/WAWHT2046 population grown at multiple sites, the data generated in this project allowed further investigation of the relationship between water absorption and milling yield...

The project led to increased collaboration between agencies and research groups and to a very extensive list of useful marker-trait associations that are listed throughout this Final Report... Many traits were covered with useful information "outputs" generated across all traits... The project was designed to provide an effective and efficient central resource for genotyping in both Adelaide and Perth for a wide range of wheat and barley traits being investigated in the GRDC Southern Region...

The project will provide a disease screening facility for the Barley Breeding Australia (BBA) program based in South Australia with a particular focus on leaf scald but also including the net blotches and other pathogens... The project will also assist barley breeding programs by identifying novel and/or durable sources of resistance to foliar pathogens and incorporating those into elite lines where they can readily be used as parents in the mainstream breeding programs... The project also aims to help develop durum varieties with resistance to crown rot by identifying and developing useful germplasm using different donors of resistance and screening / breeding strategies...
