MAGIC-Efficiency

Genetic analysis of nitrogen efficiency regulation and selection of efficient winter wheat varieties from the MAGIC-WHEAT population WM-800 as a contribution to climate protection in agriculture

Projektakronym: MAGIC-Efficiency
Projekttitel (engl.): Genetic analysis of nitrogen efficiency regulation and selection of efficient winter wheat varieties from the MAGIC-WHEAT population WM-800 as a contribution to climate protection in agriculture
Projektlaufzeit: 01.10.2018 - 30.09.2021
Förderkennzeichen: 281B201916
Topics: Plant Phenotyping, Bioeconomy, Bioproduction
Gefördert von: Bundesanstalt für Landwirtschaft und Ernährung (BLE) / Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture

The joint research project MAGIC-Efficiency consisting of the research institutes Martin-Luther University Halle-Wittenberg, Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH (FZJ), the breeding companies BASF, KWS SAAT SE, RAGT 2N, SECOBRA Saatzucht GmbH, Syngenta and GFPi elaborate the genetic regulation of nitrogen efficiency from root to grain using sensor-based plant phenotyping systems. Furthermore, it includes the selection of nitrogen efficient genotypes from the recently released multi-parental winter wheat population MAGIC-WHEAT WM-800. The MAGIC-Efficiency network makes use of the already established and highly divers MAGIC-WHEAT population WM-800 which is already genotyped with the 15k SNP chip.
Partner FZJ will investigate the root growth and root architectural traits of a selected subset of WM-800 genotypes in a paper based phenotyping system, GrowScreen-PaGe, in two contrasting nitrogen scenarios. The root traits will be investigated automatically by using RGB cameras and image processing. Genotypic differences to different nitrogen availabilities will be quantified. The data gained by all partners will be analysed in a genome wide association study. The results will serve the breeders as indication for selection of organ specific (root, shoot, kernels) nitrogen efficient genotypes.
