Strategies for breeding climate change resilient barley, genetically equipped to optimized root-microbiome interactions

Project description

Growing drought-resilient barley varieties

Barley is an inherently resilient crop. Compared to other cereals, it’s an excellent model for understanding agricultural responses to climate change. In this context, the EU-funded BarleyMicroBreed project will dig deep into the root system of barley. It will build on the paradigm that optimising the capacity of plant roots to interact with the existing soil microbiota improves crop resource use efficiency and stress resilience. The project will advance our mechanistic understanding of interactions between the crop plant genome, root phenotypic traits and the root-associated microbiota to identify innovative breeding strategies that will lead to drought-adaptive barley varieties. Part of the project’s work will be to study drought responses of 600 barley varieties in Austria, Lebanon and Morocco.
