Genetic Selection – Assessment of genetic resilience of a subset of MCVET varieties

  • Administrator: Curtis Cavers, Nirmal Hari, Anastasia Kubinec
  • Start date: 2019

Background

Currently evaluation of moisture resilience by variety is not available for producers, in spite of moisture being the most probable cause for yield reductions.

Objectives:
  • Objective 1: varieties of key crops will be evaluated and rated for extreme moisture resilience. Selection of (cereal) crop varieties more resilient to excess moisture
  • Objective 2: Better understanding of the amount and timing of excess moisture as it affects growing crops
  • Objective 3: Measurement of critical soil moisture levels impacting crop performance
