Screening for Disease Resistance to Foot Rot Fungi in Wheat and Barley Grant uri icon



  • Yield-limiting, dryland foot rot fungi need to be controlled through cost-effective means such as host plant resistance or tolerance. This project will identify resistance or tolerance to organisms that cause dryland foot rot in adapted cultivars of wheat and barley, and to identify effective resistance in cultivars that have been genetically engineered to express anti-fungal compounds and mechanisms.
