100 Day Wheats for Adaptation to a Changing Australian Climate
This project aims to investigate the potential characteristics, and define the ideotype, of a winter sown, high yielding, short cycling wheat, developed for the south eastern Australian wheat growing regions. Due to the ongoing change in climate experienced in this area, long season wheats are becoming less viable due to dry sowing conditions and insufficient time for weed control and other soil amelioration activities. This work will aid in the development of a short season/cycling wheat by building upon international knowledge with locally conducted research.
