Abstract

This project provided information, selection techniques and strategies to facilitate the development of high-yielding,
stay-green wheat varieties for Australian growers through:
a) Improved understanding of the relationships between seminal root traits and other root- and shoot-related traits in determining high-yielding, stay-green phenotypes.
b). Molecular markers and rapid phenotypic screening methods that allow selection in breeding programs and identification
of genetic regions controlling favourable traits.
c). Identification of traits leading to high-yielding, stay-green phenotypes for particular target populations of environments
using computer simulation studies.
