- About Us
The OSU wheat breeding program works specifically on winter wheat. 70% of the program focuses on soft white winter wheat; the other 30% is on hard white and hard red winter wheat.
Small White Winter Wheat - Cultivar Development
Hard Wheat - Hard White and Hard Red (New Program)
Goal: Train students to run a breeding program so that they could step in as a field tech/breeder and be able to do every part of the job, including experimental design, planting, combining, note-taking, pesticide application, etc. Students are given at least two projects: one in the field and one in the greenhouse/lab, and must be able to give public presentations; practice obtained in seminar and at field days.
