Extreme cold-hardy winter wheat being developed
Growing highly cold-hardy winter wheat in Canada and the northern tier of U.S. states could easily result in larger wheat harvests for farmers in both countries.
A University of Saskatchewan research team is trying to breed more cold-hardy winter wheat based on identifying groups of genes that impose cold resistance to wheat, according to Victoria Martinez for The StarPhoenix of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
In the Canadian Prairies winter wheat that doesn’t freeze out could likely have a 30 percent yield advantage over spring wheat.
The scientists are close to major breakthroughs for improved cold-hardy winter wheat. Genes and identifying the switches that turn the genes on to perform the winter-hardy protection are being highly researched. The teams are working with conventional plant breeding.
