More wheat for global food security

Utilizing substantial genetic potential for higher yields

05-Aug-2022

The disruptions in global trading markets resulting from the war in Ukraine, among other causes, have focused public attention on the issue of securing a sufficient supply of high-quality foods for the global population. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are searching for ...

Global wheat production can be doubled

Fine tuning their genomes would help regional wheat varieties feed growing population

13-Jul-2022

A first-of-its-kind analysis of the untapped genetic potential of wheat shows global yields are only half of what they could be. The team of international experts, led from the UK’s Rothamsted Research, says this ‘genetic yield gap’ could be closed by developing wheat varieties tailored to each ...

Key to global food security?

12-Jul-2022

Exploiting the genetic yield gap in wheat could significantly improve global food security. This is one of the key findings of an international study on wheat yield gaps in which the University of Göttingen was involved. The study, which uses a novel process-based modeling approach, also suggests ...

Wheat price falls to lowest level in four months

28-Jun-2022

The price of wheat fell to its lowest level in four months on Monday night. At times, a bushel (about 27 kilograms) traded for $9.26 on the Singapore Exchange. The last time the price of wheat was this low was at the end of February when Russia launched its war of aggression against neighboring ...

IAMO Policy Brief 44 examines the effects of the war in Ukraine on global food markets

02-May-2022

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has sent prices soaring for agricultural commodities such as grains, vegetable oils and fertilizers. This could destabilize food security, particularly in import-dependent countries in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA region). In the latest IAMO Policy Brief 44, ...

First resistance to wheat dwarfing virus discovered

Julius Kühn Institute researchers identify 14 gene loci that could be used to breed new virus-resistant wheat varieties

20-Apr-2022

If the wandering sand cicada (Psammotettix alienus) bites a wheat plant to drink plant sap, the consequences can be fatal: Along with its saliva, the cicada can transmit Wheat Dwarf Virus (WDV). Depending on the age of the plant at the time of infection, yields drop by at least 30 percent, and ...

Tomato domestication involved agricultural cultures ranging from Peru to Mexico.

03-Mar-2022

The plants we eat have been domesticated. Just as there are no Chihuahuas in nature, there are no big, juicy tomatoes, flour wheat or popcorn. Our ancestors modified these species to suit their needs and tastes. In the case of the tomato, domestication was carried out by American agricultural ...

Is modern wheat off the hook?

Gluten in wheat: What has changed during 120 years of breeding?

13-Aug-2020

In recent years, the number of people affected by coeliac disease, wheat allergy or gluten or wheat sensitivity has risen sharply. But why is this the case? Could it be that modern wheat varieties contain more immunoreactive protein than in the past? Results from a study by the Leibniz-Institute ...

Heritage of the "Pasta Wheat" mapped

New perspectives for breeding

10-Apr-2019

An international consortium has published the complete genome sequence of durum wheat in Nature Genetics. Her work not only provides insights into the development of this cereal into today's crop, but also shows ways to optimize the plant through targeted breeding. Researchers from Helmholtz ...

Wheat Resistance Gene also Protects Corn and Barley against Fungal Disease

30-Jan-2019

Plant researchers at the University of Zurich have developed transgenic corn and barley lines with improved resistance against several fungal diseases thanks to the wheat resistance gene Lr34. Following successful tests in the greenhouse, the researchers are now planning to carry out field trials ...
