    Tools to 'see' mungbean success part of new research phase
    Region: North, 04 May 2022

    The National Mungbean Improvement Program is entering its fifth iteration and aims to address how to assess gains in grain quality stability that can no longer be visually detected, while using pre-breeding screening methods to identify improved heat tolerance germplasm.

  • Functional design improvements for canola
    Functional design improvements for canola
    Region: North, 19 Apr 2022

    A research team from NSW Department of Primary Industries, with GRDC co-investment, is interrogating a historical collection of canola varieties to assess their plant architecture. They are testing the hypothesis that modifications in canola plant architecture provide ways to improve yield by matching plant characteristics to farming situations and environments.
