Description

We intend to identify key genes as targets through which stress tolerance can be explored and incorporated into breeding programmes. We have evidence that the identification of heat-tolerant photosynthetic pathways in the vegetative phase and more viable pollen in the reproductive phase contribute to efficient water use, as measured by biomass gain and lint yield.
