Genomic Prediction to Deliver Heat Tolerant Wheat to the Senegal River Basin (Phase II)

About Us

The partnership established between SLU and ICARDA will enable to strengthen the durum breeding effort of ICARDA to the Senegal River basin, with a positive effect on the local population. The collaborative research between SLU and ICARDA will provide detailed data on the tolerance of durum wheat to warming climates, but also pyramid multiple sources of heat tolerance through a very novel technique: genomic selection.
