(En)Summary: Breeding and selection methods employed at ICARDA for developing barley and wheat germplasm for dry areas are presented. They essentially comprise: screening and development of genetic stocks possessing resistance/tolerance to prevailing stresses in the region, incorporation of desired traits in the crosses required in the target environment, exposure of early generation populations to the environments in which they will be grown, use of modified bulk procedures, and multienvironment testing through a network of national programmes. Genetic variability in local landraces, primitive forms, and wild progenitors of barley and wheat have proved to be very usefulCollection: AGRIS Collection
