Cultivar Development: Establishing a Public Breeding Consortium and Testing Synergies Through Genomic Breeding

Grants and Contracts Details


Dr. Van Sanford will select wheat breeding lines to contribute to the initial training population, phenotype UK and collaborators’ breeding lines for standard agronomic traits such as yield, test weight, height, heading date and Fusarium head blight traits such as index, Fusarium damaged kernels and deoxynivalenol concentration. He will share data from phenotypic evauations with all Co-PI’s and will meet at least annually to discuss results from genomic selection efforts across the consortium including comparisons of predicted and actual performance and selection of parents based on genomic models. Stage-1 testing will occur at two locations – Lexington and Princeton, KY and later stages will occur at two additional locations: Woodford and Logan counties, KY.
