Given the right tools and the best seeds, farmers have consistently proven they can increase their production and efficiency without increasing acreage. Currently, farmers plant more acres of wheat than of any other crop with more than 555 million acres worldwide. Yet, in coming years, increases in productivity per acre will be more imperative as global demand for wheat climbs due to increase in population.
The breeding team operates out of five breeding and research centers located across major U.S. wheat – growing areas. This enables development of diverse varieties that are tailored and adapted to local environments, providing strong agronomic characteristics that address growers’ needs.
