Identify and quantify the functional and architectural traits of wheat varieties, resulting in complementarity in resource acquisition and mixing ability.
> Coordinator: Vincent ALLARD
- Exploring wheat genetic variability to identify architectural and functional traits for plasticity response to plant-plant interactions
- Evaluating genetic traits involved in the mixing ability
- Studying differences between traits and their plasticity by a modeling approach
- Developing effective phenotyping to identify key varietal traits for the conception of blends
In the field
Characterization of 60 wheat genotypes (commercial varieties, MAGIC genotypes from INRA, landraces).
Study of new traits :
