DFW - Designing Future Wheat - Work package 1 (WP1) - Increased efficiency and sustainability

Lead Research Organisation: Rothamsted Research
Department Name: Unlisted

Abstract

Increasing yield, both intrinsic yield and closing of the yield gap, must be achieved with increased efficiency and sustainability with regard to fertiliser and water input. Increased yield and efficiency in both higher and lower yielding environments, in present and future climates, requires genetic improvements in yield traits per se, as well as in tolerance to abiotic and biotic stresses. WP1 addresses two topics with shared objectives across the wheat and other JIC, RRes, EI and IFR programmes. Both require intensive high throughput field phenotyping, aided by the newly- established unique RRes and JIC facilities for in-field automated phenotyping, focussed on wheat research and employed to evaluate novel germplasm, including donor germplasm, segregating and TILLING populations. WP1 also includes further development of specific automated high throughput field phenotyping methodologies for monitoring wheat performance, the genetic dissection of key traits and the development of improved germplasm. Exploiting these approaches, WP1 researchers will dissect a range of traits using the germplasm and other resources developed within DFW. These traits include those involved in tolerance to drought and temperature stress, root and shoot development, crop height, inflorescence and grain architecture, seed size and architecture, root response to nutrient availability, use of nitrogen and other nutrients. The effect of these traits on biomass, and the potential and stability of grain yield, will be quantified.

Description During the project, we have provided BBSRC with a google.doc site, which lists all DFW outputs (including data access sites, germplasm generated, datasets generated, publications, and public engagement activities). This document is updated on a regular basis. All the objectives during the DFW reporting period have been met, and many exceeded. All the committees within DFW are running including the key data coordination task force (DCTF) and Breeder's toolkit committees, both with WP1 representation. A second annual open day was held at Rothamsted and included substantial inputs and field demonstrations from WP1
Specific highlights from WP1 are:

Adaptation for target and for future environments:
• Yield variability of maize and winter wheat in European cropping systems were investigated using multipole crop models
• Forecasts made for performance in 2050 of current and optimised wheat varieties
• Analysis of genetic yield potential and yield gaps made
• Identification of a gene for providing high and low temperature tolerance during meiosis.
• Wheat recognizes a long day as ~13 hours. We identified varieties that still see 13 hours as a short day.
• We are identifying genes controlling this flexibility of drilling date.
• Discovery of two new genes that increase crop height.
• Studied the effect of high temperature on wheat development and yield using two UK wheat genotypes showing different levels of sensitivity to heat stress.
• The Ph1 story was completed after 60 years, in terms of identifying the gene within the Ph1 locus responsible for controlling homoeologous recombination through use of CRISPR mutants.
• Practical studies on impacts of heat stress initiated including physiological and RNAseq data
• Work with CIMMYT on drought stresses
• Drone-based thermal imagery giving insights into drought responses of a mapping population
• A candidate genes for tolerance to both low and high temperature during meiosis is under investigation

Canopy architecture and phenology:
• Identification of phenotypes for stacked loss-of-function mutations in GA2ox9 (increased height) and GA3ox2 (extreme, non-flowering dwarf).
• Inclusion of ten new Rht-1 dwarfing alleles in the Breeder's Toolkit.
• Triple mutants of GA20ox underdevelopment as well as gene edited lines
• Scanalyzer-derived data identified multiple development specific QTL for height (growth)

Reproductive development:
• Continued development of germplasm containing variant alleles of TEOSINTE BRANCHED1 (TB1), to test for the effect of these alleles on multiple yield-related traits.
• Forward genetics screen has identified an amino acid transporter as a key regulator of spikelet architecture.
• Investigation of QTL on chromosome 2DS that regulates wheat spikelet architecture, narrowing the QTL interval and five candidate genes identified.
• VERNALIZATION1 (VRN1) was shown to genetically regulate the flowering time response of winter wheat to rising ambient temperatures.
• Importance of T6P metabolism being investigated in diversity panels and for precursor treatments in field trials

Soil/root interactions:
• X-ray imaging has determined that wheat root elongation behaviour is regulated by soil bulk density.
• Field experiments found genotypic effects with respect to soil water uptake.
• Comparison of the growth of wheat exposed to root impedance, either by a confining pressure in a sand culture experiment or by soil drying, at a range of nitrate availabilities.
• Extraction of undisturbed 1m soil columns for X-ray Computed Tomography imaging to reveal in situ root-soil interactions. Multiple (>60) field cores (1m depth) taken from DFW trials in 2019 at Rothamsted and scanned using Nottingham X- ray CAT scanner. Root analysis in progress.
• Electrical resistance tomography under Scanalyzer used to measure root activity
• Interactions between root impedance and P-availability investigated
• Modelling of penetrometer resistance completed
• Links between soil moisture and root length distribution determined


Nutrient Use Efficiency (NUE):
• Analysis of an N-related pathway in wheat varieties to establish (i) response to N fertilizer application and capture of N, and (ii) to retain N within the plant under drought stress.
• Genome-wide identification, phylogeny and expression profile of the Nitrate/Peptide Transporter gene family
• Trehalose 6-phosphate shown to coordinate sink strength with photosynthesis through regulation of sucrose transport.
• The DFW toolkit, including Breeders Toolkit field trialed for performance.
• The Paragon x Chinese Spring population was screened under the Rothamsted field scanalyzer, leading to the identification of growth-stage specific QTL.
• Nitrogen variety trials undertaken under Scanalyzer to investigate dynamics of responses to N application
• Genetic diversity in GS and links to N losses in wheat investigated
• Ammonia losses measured in relation to apoplastic ammonia levels and nitrogen fertilizer application
• Detailed analysis of genes families for specific amino acid and nitrate transporters (NPF) in wheat completed
• A recent publication examined 'A roadmap for lowering crop N requirements'

Innovative technologies: infield phenotyping:
• Optimized development of cost-effective phenotyping and phenotypic analysis.
• Low cost ground based technology developed using raspberry pi devices (Crop Quant)
• New algorithms for identification and quantification of specific wheat growth phases from images developed using Scanalyzer data extended to any rgb image capture device including drone based
• Substantial application of machine learning and deep learning approaches adopted for wheat crop image analysis
• Electrical resistance tomography under Scanalyzer used to measure root activity
• Breeders toolkit material extensively phenotyped at both John Innes and Rothamsted using drone technology and under phenotyping gantries at both sites
Exploitation Route • Suppressor screens have led to the identification of around 40 novel Rht-1 dwarfing mutations. Many other alleles are in the pipeline and backcrossing to remove excess mutations is in progress. These novel alleles are much in demand by the wheat breeders.
• Root exudates may play and important role in metering water up take by roots.
• Improved workflow for drone imaging especially using thermal imagery useful for drone-based crop monitoring providers.
• Modelling predicts that drought tolerance during reproductive development is important for achieving higher yield potentials and greater yield stability for wheat under future climate change in Europe
• New algorithms for rapid crop phenotyping may be adopted by the breeding industry to advanced crop improvement

Description • There is significant commercial interest in novel alleles in wheat architecture genes. Novel mutants in genes involved in gibberellin biosynthesis and signalling are being introgressed into winter and spring cultivar to be assessed as alternatives to Rht-1 dwarfing alleles. Novel Rht-1 dwarfing alleles are expected to be available for inclusion in the BTK by the end of 2019. • Genetic diversity for heat tolerance enables breeding of climate resilient crops for mitigating negative impacts of global warming on crop yields. • Drought stress during reproductive development could drastically reduce grain number in wheat, but quantitative evaluation of such effect is unknown under climate change. For the first time we quantified potential yield benefits of drought tolerance during reproductive development under climate change and identified potential cultivar traits for improvement. We concluded that tolerance to drought stress during reproductive development is important for high yield potentials and greater yield stability of wheat under climate change in most of the wheat growing regions in Europe. Our analysis could potentially accelerate breeding programmes by identifying target traits for wheat improvement in a changing climate. • Improvements in automated phenotyping will allow more detailed and higher throughput of germplasm screening. Considerable industry interest is being shown.
