Exploiting variation in stomatal dynamics and ear photosynthesis to optimise wheat productivity.
The project aims to explore the degree of variation that exists in the dynamics of leaf stomatal responses and in ear photosynthesis traits by using a combination of phenotyping and genetic tools. A multiparent advanced generation inter-cross (MAGIC) winter wheat population with a potential elevated genetic diversity will be used.
