Theme 2 - Plant resource partitioning to enhance the efficiency of yield production under stress

Introduction

Efficient resource partitioning amongst metabolite networks, together with allocation of photo-assimilates and nutrients (N) between developing tissues, is important to maximise root based symbioses, seed yield and seed quality. In chickpea, most of these processes are poorly understood in either the presence or absence of abiotic stress. Detailed analysis of these processes with isotope-based, metabolomic and physiological techniques, will allow the development of metabolite based cost-effective biomarkers to direct trait discovery promoting targeted C and or N-allocation pathways that support improved growth, N2-fixation capacity and yield potential.
