Each year, the CAIGE project imports wheat germplasm from the International Wheat and Maize Improvement Centre (CIMMYT) and the International Centre for Agriculture Research in Dry Areas (ICARDA).  This material is then evaluated in locations around Australia and screened for disease resistance.

All the data collected can be found here on this site for wheat, durum, barley and pulse. Select the data you are interested in:

Imported Lists -  the lists of material imported from CIMMYT and ICARDA, by year

Yied Trials - Information and data collected from yield trials in Australia (the material is put in trials the year after its importation)

Disease Screening - Information and data collected from disease resistance screeening in Australia (done in the 2nd year after importation)

Donor Data - data sent from CIMMYT and ICARDA breeders for the lines imported in Australia
