This program focuses on the development of new winter wheat varieties that are adapted to the northern Prairies and have improved winter-hardiness, disease resistance, yield and processing quality. Additionally, it conducts supporting research aimed at the acquisition, evaluation and transfer of a broad range of disease and pest resistance genes into the HRWW breeding pool.
