Welcome to T3/Barley
The Triticeae Toolbox (T3) is the web portal for data generated by the Triticeae Coordinated Agricultural Project (T-CAP), funded by the National Institute for Food and Agriculture (NIFA) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). It also contains data from US Uniform Regional Nurseries, supported by the US Wheat and Barley Scab Initiative. The database was initially developed as The Hordeum Toolbox (THT) at the website hordeumtoolbox.org to hold barley data generated by the Barley CAP project (2006-2010). T3 Barley is an extension of The Hordeum Toolbox and incorporates all the THT data. The database was further developed at the website triticeaetoolbox.org/barley. That website was archived in June 2020 and all the data moved to this current site.

Blank Upload Templates
Below are blank upload templates for each data type.
Generate a set of sample templates for new accessions, locations, trials, and trait observations. These templates contain all new data in properly formatted templates that can be used to practice uploading each data type to the sandbox.
- Generate your set of sample templates
- Follow the Guided Phenotype Upload Workflow to upload the template for each data type
Below are example templates generated for demo wheat trials from a 2020 workshop. You can use these files to see how the templates are properly formatted.
For more detailed instructions, see the Detailed Phenotype Upload Instructions

Submit Phenotype Data
To submit phenotype data to T3/Barley follow these three general steps:
Step 1: Create Upload Templates
Data submitted to T3/Barley should be in the format of the upload template for the data type you are submitting. View the detailed upload instructions for specific information on each data type.
Step 2: Add Data to Sandbox
Once you have your upload templates, you can test-load them on this Sandbox site to check for any errors.
Step 3: Submit Trial Data
If your trial data has been successfully added to the Sandbox you can submit your trials directly to the production site by clicking the Submit Trial button on the trial detail page.
If your data has not been added to the Sandbox or if you would prefer to submit your files directly to the production site, you can submit your individual upload templates or data files to us using the Phenotype Submission Form.
Submit Genotype Data
Please Contact Us if you have genotype data you would like to submit to T3/Barley.
