Wheat research receives funding

Eleven research projects ranging from nitrogen fertilizer use and soil health to drying grain while in storage are receiving $2.2 million from the Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission and Alberta Wheat.

Three of the projects are on fusarium head blight (management, resistance, and post-harvest strategies) while four are either focused on, or have a significant component devoted to, improving the disease resistance and milling potential of durum.

Most of the funding ($2.07 million) is coming from Sask Wheat with the remainder from Alberta Wheat. The 11 projects will leverage more than $5.1 million in funding from all sources.
