Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
Drought resistant hybrids for Central Queensland (CQ), Darling Downs and north-west New South Wales (NW NSW) will consolidate maize production... Five inbreds with good resistance to polysora rust and high yield potential were released, and these materials are now being evaluated by seed companies... The season, 30 elite materials were evaluated across South Burnet, Central Queensland (herbicide residue resulted in poor stand establishment the trial was not harvested) and Darling Downs...

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...
