New Super-Wheat Can Yield More Crops - Presented by: The Aol. On Network

Wheat is one of the most important crops. Now, a new hybrid strain of wheat could be the answer to crop shortages. The National Institute of Agricultural Botany in Cambridge has developed the wheat by cross breeding a modern wheat strain and a grass that is an ancestor of the crop. Early agricultural trials showed that the new strain of wheat is bigger and stronger than the varieties that are currently grown, and could increase wheat production by 30 percent.
