ANR funded project

Scientific and Technological Cooperation in Plant Genome Research as basis of the 'Knowledge-Based Bio-Economy' (Plant - KBBE) 2010
Projet HY-WHEAT

Hybrid Wheat for Reduced Inputs and Sustainable Yield

The aim of the project is to develop an effective and commercially-viable genetic system for
the production of hybrid wheat varieties, based on new cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) and
fertility restoration (Rf) technology (msH1). The msH1 system, whose components are
derived from the species Hordeum chilense, has been demonstrated very recently by one of
the consortium partners and avoids the problems which until now have until prevented the
development of viable CMS-based hybrid breeding technology in wheat. The project is
industry-lead and includes three plant breeding companies from different states, in
collaboration with public research groups from two different states.
