From the 2018 Oklahoma Wheat Growers Convention- Ron Hays Talks Wheat Breeding with Dr. Brett Carver of Oklahoma State

Sun, 12 Aug 2018 21:17:42 CDT

At the recent Oklahoma Wheat Growers’ Association annual meeting on August 9 in El Reno, Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays had the opportunity to sit down and talk about the wheat breeding efforts at Oklahoma State University, led by Dr. Brett Carver, Regents Professor and the Wheat Genetics Chair in Agriculture. Dr. Carver leads the OSU Wheat Improvement Team- and under his direction, OSU has one of the premiere wheat breeding programs in the United States and beyond.

Hays and Dr. Carver looked back at the 2018 growing season and what Carver and his team learned from the extremely difficult conditions that resulted in Oklahoma wheat producers about half of a normal wheat crop.

Dr. Carver reviewed what his experimental lines looked like during the 2018 growing season- and where the wheat breeding program stands in releasing any new varieties yet here in the fall of 2018. Dr. Carver says, subject to OSU approval, it is likely at least one new variety will be announced in the near future.

Hays and Dr. Carver also talked about what was ahead for his wheat breeding efforts- and what the future is for Land Grant Public Breeding programs like the one that he leads.
