Barley, globally the fourth most important cereal, provides food and beverages for humans and feed for animal husbandry. Maximizing grain yield under varying climate conditions largely depends on the optimal timing of flowering. Therefore, regulation of flowering time is of extraordinary importance to meet future food and feed demands. We developed the(More)
Drought is one of the most severe stresses, endangering crop yields worldwide. In order to select drought tolerant genotypes, access to exotic germplasm and efficient phenotyping protocols are needed. In this study the high-throughput phenotyping platform "The Plant Accelerator", Adelaide, Australia, was used to screen a set of 47 juvenile (six week old)(More)
A malting quality quantitative trait locus (QTL) study was conducted using a set of 39 wild barley introgression lines (hereafter abbreviated with S42ILs). Each S42IL harbors a single marker-defined chromosomal segment from the wild barley accession 'ISR 42-8' (Hordeum vulgare ssp. spontaneum) within the genetic background of the elite spring barley(More)
Genetically well-characterized mapping populations are a key tool for rapid and precise localization of quantitative trait loci (QTL) and subsequent identification of the underlying genes. In this study, a set of 73 introgression lines (S42ILs) originating from a cross between the spring barley cultivar Scarlett (Hordeum vulgare ssp. vulgare) and the wild(More)

Two hundred sixteen barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) cultivars were selected to represent the diversity and history of European spring two-row barley breeding and to search for alleles controlling agronomic traits by association genetics. The germplasm was genotyped with 7864 gene-based single nucleotide polymorphism markers and corresponding field trial trait(More)
Drought is a major stress which can seriously limit yield in many crops including barley. Wild barley introgression lines (ILs) like the S42IL library may enhance drought stress tolerance of barley cultivars through the introduction of exotic alleles. The S42IL library was already characterized with 636 Illumina SNPs. New approaches like genotyping by(More)
Nitrogen (N) is one of the most important plant nutrients, controlling growth and, ultimately, yield of a cultivar. Hordeum vulgare ssp. spontaneum, the wild barley progenitor of cultivated barley, is known to possess genes that can improve tolerance against biotic and abiotic stresses. A quantitative trait locus (QTL) study with two levels of N(More)
In this report we studied the genetic regulation of juvenile development of wildbarley introgression lines (S42ILs) under two contrasting hydroponic nitrogen (N)supplies. Ten shoot and root related traits were examined among 42 S42ILs and therecurrent parent ‘Scarlett’. The traits included tiller number, leafnumber, plant height, leaf and root length, leaf(More)

In a number of crop species hybrids are able to outperform line varieties. The anthers of the autogamous bread wheat plant are normally extruded post anthesis, a trait which is unfavourable for the production of F1 hybrid grain. Higher anther extrusion (AE) promotes cross fertilization for more efficient hybrid seed production. Therefore, this study aimed(More)
The concentrations of both essential nutrients and chemically similar toxic analogues accumulated in cereal grains have a major impact on the nutritional quality and safety of crops. Naturally occurring genetic diversity can be exploited for the breeding of improved varieties through introgression lines (ILs). In this study, multi-element analysis was(More)
