Global conference underscores complex socio-economic role of wheat

A recent gathering of more than 600 international scientists highlighted the complexity of wheat as a crop and emphasized the key role wheat research plays in ensuring global food security now and in the future.


Drought conditions worse; will affect soybean yield, wheat planting

In a normal year, September precipitation has minimal effect on soybean yield except for double cropped soybean after wheat and in some portions of the Missouri where delayed planting is part of a drought avoidance strategy. But, this year it is estimated that nearly one million acres of soybean were planted after July 1.


Wheat choice has lasting effect on soil health and yield

Scientists investigating how to control take-all, a fungus that lives in soil and infects wheat roots to cause disease, have discovered that different varieties of wheat have distinct and lasting impacts on the health of the soil in which they are grown.


Canadian genomics project is leading the way in wheat breeding innovation

Wheat farmers have reason to celebrate, as the Canadian Triticum Applied Genomics (CTAG2) project is about to step up its contribution to the global effort to decipher the wheat genome, led by the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC). The expected outcome is a new generation of wheat cultivars with higher yields and better resistance to stresses.
