Research Project: Alien Chromosome Engineering and the Deployment of Novel Sources of Resistance to Fusarium Head Blight in Wheat Project Number: 0500-00053-003-50
Project Type: Grant

Start Date: Jun 25, 2012
End Date: Jun 24, 2015

Objective:
Develop wheat-Leymus compensating recombinant lines with small alien segments that still retain the FHB resistance gene for deployment and gene pyramiding for FHB disease control.

Approach:
Develop wheat-Lymus chromosome recombinant lines with FHB resistance. Determine the effect of T7AL.7Lr#1S FHB resistance on DON accumulation. Pre-breed novel T7AL.7Lr#1S FHB resistance ino U.S. adapted wheat to verify resistance.
