My research project

  • Description
  • Objectives
  • Outcomes

Investigating envirotyping methodology to evaluate contributions of stay-green traits to wheat yield in Australian environments.

  • Characterising multi-environment trial water stress environments and incorporating this information into FA models of yield performance.
  • Characterising the effects in different environment types of QTL identified to aid selection for stay-green traits and yield.

Identify the target environment is like a milestone in breeding, which allow estimating the true genotypic and phenotypic values. Stay-green has been identified to influence genetic gain that could benefit in various environmental scenarios for wheat and other crops.

I enjoy understanding how crop environment is influenced by numerous natural interactions. Stay-green phenotype can allow a plant to have amazing plasticity so it can be well adapted to different environments.
