Reading Time: < 1 minute

The Alberta Wheat Commission has invested $720,625 in five wheat research projects, which leverages an additional $622,625 from other funding partners.

The projects are: New insights on management practices for hail-damaged crops; advanced monitoring to better understand stripe rust in Western Canada; improved water use efficiency for better yield and drought tolerance; new, low-cost testing technology for mycotoxin detection; and new tools to improve wheat grain yield under normal and abiotic stress conditions.

The projects are taking place at a number of field research institutions in Alberta and Ontario.
