Hybrid wheats - David Feuerhelm

“I have worked for Syngenta for just over 10 years and enjoy spending time in the field in the breeding material trying to find the plant that will eventually become a variety of the future. Putting everything that the farmer needs in a single wheat variety is still the biggest challenge for a wheat breeder: yield, grain quality and agronomic characteristics are all a key focus for assessing lines."
