DST - Integrating Bio-treated Wastewater Reuse with Enhanced Water Use Efficiency to Support the Green Economy in EU and India

DST - Integrating Bio-treated Wastewater Reuse with Enhanced Water Use Efficiency to Support the Green Economy in EU and India

The participation to this large project is through Work Package number 4, which involves collaborative activities between several labs in India and Europe. Below are the respective Europe and India packages:

WP4: Improving WUE and drought tolerance of maize, sorghum, millet and tomato via genomics approaches and modelling - EU

Objective

This workpackage will (i) identify and evaluate major QTLs influencing WUE and drought tolerance for biomass production in cereals and for root architecture in tomato (ii) produce genetic materials and knowledge useful for the improvement of WUE and drought tolerance at field level through genomics-assisted approaches, and, (iii) provide elements for modeling growth and biomass production as well as for optimizing the choice of the species and genotypes to be grown in typical European and Indian cropping systems under rainfed and irrigated conditions.

WP4: Development of water efficient crop varieties - India

Objective

Cross-species comparison for biomass production and water use efficiency in maize, sorghum, pearl millet and tomato

Better understanding of mRNA and smRNA transcriptome of sorghum and pearl millet

Mapping and characterization of Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) for drought tolerance related traits in maize, sorghum, pearl millet and chickpea

Improving drought adaptation using marker-assisted breeding and trait-based selection approaches in maize, sorghum, pearl millet and chickpea

Capacity building on NARS for research on drought adaptation of crops and integrated breeding for drought adaptation
