Workpackage 1


Identify and quantify the functional and architectural traits of wheat varieties, resulting in complementarity in resource acquisition and mixing ability.

Members involved

> Coordinator: Vincent ALLARD

> Partners: GDEC, ECOSYS, GQE, LEM


  • Exploring wheat genetic variability to identify architectural and functional traits for plasticity response to plant-plant interactions
  • Evaluating genetic traits involved in the mixing ability
  • Studying differences between traits and their plasticity by a modeling approach
  • Developing effective phenotyping to identify key varietal traits for the conception of blends

In the field
