Adaptawheat – Genetics and physiology of wheat development to flowering – tools to breed for improved adaptation and yield potential

The overall objective of this project is the timely delivery of knowledge, variation, and tools to breeding programmes for developmental attributes of wheat that will improve adaptation and yield.

This addresses short term Global and European food security issues and establishes a platform for long term genetic gain and maintenance breeding. For this reason, in this project we aim to test a set of physiological hypotheses, and identify prospective genetic factors and valuable germplasm, for flowering time and its phenological partitioning, in wheat. These hypotheses will relate to adaptation and crop performance.

This project has 18 global partners. Read more about ADAPTAWHEAT.
