Applying nitrogen fertilizer to wheat in early spring

Early spring is the time wheat growers implement nitrogen (N) fertilization strategies. This means estimating the amount of N needed and estimating how much of the N might be lost due to excessive rainfall and saturated soils.


Interactions between a fungal pathogen and grain aphids on wheat

Scientists from the University of Nottingham and Rothamsted Research, which receives strategic funding from the BBSRC, have found that exposure of wheat to both a fungal pathogen and an insect pest allows the fungal disease to thrive.


Scientists create haplotype map of wheat varieties

An international team of scientists led by Eduard Akhunov, Ph.D., of Kansas State University has created the first haplotype map of wheat that provides detailed description of genetic differences in a worldwide sample of wheat lines.


K-State, General Mills to develop new wheat varieties

Kansas State University officials are hailing a recent partnership with food giant General Mills as a win-win proposition that ultimately will benefit the state’s farmers and consumers worldwide. The two groups have formed a research agreement to develop wheat varieties with improved nutritional, milling and baking qualities.


Monsanto and wheat farmers reach settlement agreement

Monsanto Company has entered into a settlement agreement with wheat farmers in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, and Mississippi that resolves a number of lawsuits related to the May 2013 discovery of genetically-modified wheat on a farm in Eastern Oregon and subsequent temporary limits on certain exports of soft white wheat.


Roving cameras see the big picture for wheat breeding

Wheat breeders at Washington State University are sizing up experimental crops from a new perspective: cameras that see far better than the human eye.


Ancient wheat DNA found in Britain provides clues to history of ag

Some of us spend so much time thinking about not eating wheat, particularly its key protein, gluten, that it can be difficult to remember how important wheat is to human history. That’s a lot of history to hang on the remains of some grain kernels. Now, a major archaeological find appears to have reset that understanding of history, and it hangs, not even on kernels, but on preserved DNA.
