Applying molecular markers to plant breeding can significantly reduce the time and cost of developing new varieties.

The Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) is therefore encouraging the development of molecular markers through its $3.1 million annual investment in the Australian Winter Cereals Molecular Marker Program (AWCMMP).

AWCMMP is a national R&D effort using the latest molecular marker techniques to improve the Australian grain industry
