Description

Control of infertility in wheat by phenotype screening and genetic analysis of varieties and breeding (SA LINK LK09116) WESP.

To protect against potentially devastating crop losses (Food Security).
To assess subclinical effects on yield stability (Resource Use Efficiency).
To improve breeding efficiency.
Industry could not do this alone.

Field-based screening protocols.
Characterisation of problem Both “Devastating” and “Cryptic” forms.
Genetics of susceptibility and DNA markers to eliminate it.
New insights into the physiological basis of this undesirable trait.
