Using Crop Wild Relatives for Future Lentil Breeding Evaluation of Drought and Disease Resistance of Interspecific Hybrid Lines

Grant No
Project Description
This project used crop wild relatives of lentil to conduct an evaluation of resistance to the three most serious problems in lentil production: fungal infection, parasitic plant infection, and tolerance to drought. The interspecific hybrid lines that were developed have great potential to improve lentil production amidst changing climatic conditions.
