Experimentation 2017



As part of the BreedWheat Future Investments project (ANR 10-BTBR-0003, www.breedwheat.fr), analysis of drought tolerance of bread wheat lines. A collection of 312 lines selected from accessions maintained by the Clermont-Ferrand Biological Resource Centre (www6.clermont.inra.fr/umr1095/crb) representing global diversity was tested at two water availability levels. During the growing season (November 2016 - July 2017), the difference in rainfall between the two treatments was 262.8 mm. The average yields obtained were 55 q/ha for the mobile sheltered area and 89 q/ha for the unsheltered area.
