OSU Wheat Breeding Program Hitting Road Gear Under the Direction of Dr. Brett Carver

Tue, 18 May 2010 21:12:15 CDT

OSU Wheat Breeding Program Hitting Road Gear Under the Direction of Dr. Brett Carver Oklahoma State University bred hard red winter wheat varieties are being embraced more and more by many Oklahoma wheat producers- and Dr. Brett Carver tells us that when wheat growers respond by growing OSU wheat varieties- it's a "win win" situation.

Three varieties that are being grown on many wheat farms this year from Dr. Carver's program include Endurance, Duster and OK Bullet. A fourth variety that Brett Carver is especially high on as seed is being multiplied this year is Billings. Dr. Carver believes that Billings has great yield potential and excellent disease resistance. He sees Billings as a great wheat that should displace several other varieties in the north central part of Oklahoma- including Jagger.

We talk about these varieties as well as what is in the pipeline. We also talk about the support that the Wheat Improvement Team and the breeding efforts at OSU receive from the fees collected from Oklahoma Genetics, Incorporated. And we discuss future efforts in wheat breeding and how they might be impacted by genetically modified efforts being kicked around at this time.
