To protect crops against herbicide damage and maximize crop yields, we must develop crop varieties with high herbicide tolerance. My research revealed large genetic variability for pre-emergent metribuzin tolerance in wheat ( The genetics of metribuzin tolerance in wheat ( fits an additive-dominance model model which is valuable information to plant breeders and wheat producers worldwide. QLT mapping ( and wheat 90K SNP chip ( identified genomic regions and candidate genes responsible for metribuzin tolerance. Transcriptome sequencing revealed key genes, mechanisms, and novel EST-SSR markers associated with metribuzin tolerance. These resources provide promising avenues for metribuzin tolerance breeding in wheat.
