Wheat Wide Crosses Program


With rapidly increasing population growth in Pakistan wheat production is crucial. To accomplish this, additional genetic diversity for combating the major biotic and abiotic stresses is needed. Practically cultivar improvement with new allelic genetic diversity is an approach that has global interest. Thus we can expect that hybridization and selection of elite wheat lines may deliver novel genes resistant to stresses for promising the long term sustainability of wheat production. Such a strategy to harness and exploit new genomic diversity is one of the approaches being used in Wheat Wide Crosses Program and this study is thus envisioned for hybridization and selection of elite high yielding wheat lines resistant to biotic and abiotic stresses.
