US flags new wheat era

Plain text source: 
The WGRC's role in the project is to identify traits that can assist hybrid wheat production and that are naturally available in grass species closely related to cultivated wheat... Bayer CropScience will work with WGRC researchers to develop a 'trait-discovery pipeline' for efficient hybrid wheat production using the university's genetic stocks... Dr Jesse Poland, adjunct assistant professor of agronomy, who leads the project, said climate models predicted that in regions such as South Asia, yield would decrease by 10 per cent for every 1 C rise in temperature...
