Europe is heading toward a large wheat harvest this year but concerns are mounting that much of it could only be fit to feed animals after heavy rain earlier this month.
As the wheat planting season approaches, it is recommended that growers treat seed with fungicide before planting. Seed treatments control seed-transmitted diseases that lower yield and grain quality.
Evogene Ltd. announced an amendment to the remaining work plan under its collaboration with Bayer CropScience LP (Bayer) for improved wheat.

Bargain hunters reportedly boosted the wheat markets before the weekend. Wheat futures suffered a dearth of late-week news, which may be one reason they rose Friday. Active bargain hunting and short-covering apparently entered the markets, which made considerable sense when considered the size of the May-July breakdown and the huge short exposure of the trading funds. September CBOT wheat rallied 9.25 cents to $5.38/bushel at their Friday close, while September KC wheat surged 10.75 cents to $6.3125/bushel, and September MWE wheat moved up 8.0 cents to $6.2775.
