WP 2 - Screening root & shoot traits

Last changed: 05 February 2024

We will screen many different spring wheat varieties in special growing facilities in a research center in Germany.

About 40 spring wheat varieties have been pre-selected by the industrial partner (LantM). The pre-selected lines represent both older and newly registered varieties as well as breeding lines from Lantmännen and international breeding companies. Growth of selected wheat varieties will be monitored in the GROWSCREEN-Rhizo facility at Jülich Forschungszentrum in Germany (shown on the picture). The results will provide the knowledge for the selection of c. 20 wheat lines with contrasting phenotypic traits for planting in a field trial (WP 3).
