Heat Tolerance project

IDENTIFICATION OF GENETIC VARIATION FOR HEAT TOLERANCE IN WHEAT GERMPLASM OF RELEVANCE TO THE NORTHERN GRAINS REGION (US00057)

These materials have been tested at the IA Watson Grains Research Centre for tolerance to high temperature at different dates of sowing. This project, funded by GRDC, ultimately aims to identify genetic variation for heat stress tolerance in wheat and the genetic markers underpinning this tolerance.
