- Evaluation of GWAS panel for yield and yield attributing traits under stress environment.
- QTL mapping for the major traits of interest in quinoa.
- Identification of robust and closely linked markers to the ‘traits of interest’.
- Identify the donors for the ‘traits of interest’ to be utilised in breeding program.
Date of Sowing: 1 November 2020 Experimental design: Augmented RCBD with 5 blocks Treatments/Variables: Genotypes: 190 test genotypes and 6 checks. Stress conditions: Three levels of salinity (ECiw) treatments (control, 10dS/m, 20dS/m) and one water deficit condition (50% ET-based irrigation).
