Research Project: Fhb Resistant Soft Wheat for Michigan and the Eastern Soft Wheat Region Project Number: 0500-00053-003-35
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Apr 24, 2011
End Date: Apr 23, 2015

Objective:
Accelerate development, multiplication and release of commerically viable varieties and advanced generation lines of soft winter wheat which are both adapted to Michigan and exhibit resistance to damage by Fusarium Head Blight.

Approach:
Make crosses between elite high yielding germplasm and FHB resistant germplasm, evaluate the effectiveness of using FHB-resistance QTL through with the ame of making rapid improvement of FHB resistance in soft winter wheat.
