CWA Open House 2016

CWA Open House 2016

March 16, 2016 – Saskatoon, Saskatchewan

Subject matter experts, scientists, and representatives from the Canadian Wheat Alliance’s (CWA) four partner organizations shared the latest developments in ongoing research and provided tours of NRC's state-of-the-art facilities during the inaugural CWA Open House.

Scientific posters available for viewing included:

  • High throughput DNA genotyping for increased breeding efficiency
  • Different methods for breeding wheat varieties resistant to pre-harvest sprouting
  • The development of a Fusarium Head Blight resistant germplasm; and
  • The improvement of photosynthetic efficiency in wheat
