Abstract: Improved productivity of barley in the low rainfall environments of southern Australia is determined by the maintenance of yield and physical grain quality when challenged with environmental stresses. Traits involved in tolerance to stresses, that maximise the capture and efficient use of available moisture, are desirable. The current knowledge of the genetics of adaptive traits, and the genetic resources available to improve the adaptation of barley to the low rainfall environments of southern Australia are discussed.
