This presentation will discuss the two genetic conditions that result in low falling numbers and decreased wheat end-use quality caused by high levels of alpha-amylase. It will also describe the collective efforts to develop new immunological tools for rapid screening and detection of high alpha-amylase, and efforts to develop the genetic tools necessary to breed for LMA and PHS resistant wheat.
