Communicating concepts about how to maximise cropping systems in the breeding phase through to field growth, to support the endeavour of maintaining future global food outputs despite the changing climate.
This project explored the viability of root architecture as a selective breeding target for drought adaptation in bread wheat, by looking at its relationship with other agronomic and physiological traits, and understanding how this relationship may differ dependent on genetic background and experimental setting.
