Genetics and breeding of wheat responses to abiotic and biotic stress.  Breeding wheat for winter survival:  characterizations of genes associated with frost tolerance.  Enhance quality, functionality and marketability in the western US of soft white and club wheat.  Control of rusts of cereal crops.

The goal is to reduce risks associated with wheat production by improving winter survival, disease resistance, grain yield and crop quality.  We focus on resistance to stripe rust, pathogenic nematodes, and the soil-borne diseases eyespot, Cephalosporium stripe, and Fusarium crown rot.  Recent cultivar releases include Cara, ARS-Chrystal and ARS-Crescent soft white club wheats, and ARS-Amber and ARS-Selbu, soft white winter wheats.
