Research Interests:

  • Breeding soft (pasty) and hard (bread) winter wheat for Ontario
  • Evaluation of winter wheat and winter durum for Southwestern Ontario (Performance and Registration trials)
  • Development and characterization of winter wheat populations for molecular marker studies
  • Pre-harvest sprouting in soft white winter wheat
  • Identification and development of winter wheat germplasm with resistance to fusarium head blight (FHB) and tolerance to deoxynivalenol (DON)
  • Variety responses to FHB resistance and tolerance to DON in winter wheat
  • Pyramiding FHB genes from different sources of resistance using conventional breeding and biotechnology
  • Annual survey of Fusarium spp. and DON level in cereals in Ontario
  • Leaf diseases in cereals and their management
  • Studying differences in aggressiveness and DON production of isolates of Fusarium graminearum

Recent or current projects include:

  • Enhancing Winter Wheat Performance and Quality by Host Resistance to Multiple Diseases and Fungicide Application (2011-2013)
  • Evaluation of pre-harvest sprouting in soft white winter wheat in Ontario (2012-2014)
  • Evaluation and testing of high-yielding winter wheat lines (2011-2015)
  • Advancing Canadian Field Crops (winter wheat) through breeding for production efficiency, pest resistance and consumer quality (2010-2013)
  • A strategy to improve wheat yield and quality through integrated management of Fusarium head blight (2007-2011)
  • Testing and development of winter durum wheat cultivars for Ontario (2008-2010)
  • Assessment of Fusarium head blight (FHB) and deoxynivalenol (DON) level in oat crop in Ontario (2006)
  • Fusarium head blight (FHB) management in wheat through host genetic resistance (2005-2006)
