Location: Corn Host Plant Resistance Research
Project Number: 6406-21000-013-01
Start Date: Jul 01, 2013
End Date: Jun 30, 2015
Corn breeding lines will be developed from germplasm previously identified as potential sources of resistance to aflatoxin accumulation and newly identified germplasm using conventional and molecular marker assisted breeding methods. Germplasm lines will be grown in replicated field tests, inoculated with Aspergillus flavus, and evaluated for subsequent aflatoxin accumulation.
