CSIRO provides wheat and barley breeders and pre-breeders with a suite of research outputs
to assist them to breed improved varieties.
CSIRO pre-breeding research in wheat and barley takes a national perspective on germplasm development and mechanisms underlying enhanced adaptation to major grain growing regions.
It addresses including the following industry issues: better water use efficiency, salinity and acid soil tolerance, nutrient utilisation, rust, crown rot and viral resistance, plant architecture traits, grain quality and traits for improved human health.
