USAID Helps Fund Research for Heat-Tolerant Wheat

As part of the United States’ initiative to ensure food security, Feed the Future, USAID is funding research at Washington State University that will aim to create heat-resistant varieties of wheat better suited for harsh climates around the world that struggle with adequate food sources. Researchers hope to obtain the first temperature-tolerant breed of wheat within five years. (Read More)

 

Improving Heat Tolerance of Wheat by Combining Genomic, Molecular, and Physiological Approaches

Climate change, particularly the heat stress, poses a serious challenge to the wheat production, which needs to double by 2050 in order to meet the food demand of the growing population. Every 1°C rise in temperature above the optimal results in wheat yield losses of up to 3-4%. By the end of the 21st century, global annual mean temperature including South Asia is projected to go up by 4°C, thus adversely affecting the wheat production in most of fertile Indo-Gangetic plains.

Better Wheat for a Warming Planet

PULLMAN, Wash.—Washington State University will lead a new effort to develop wheat varieties that are better at tolerating the high temperatures found in most of the world’s growing regions—temperatures that are likely to increase with global warming. (Read More)

 

In Pullman, A Wheat Geneticist Attempts to Stay Ahead of Climate Change

Knee-high wheat whispers against Professor Kulvinder Gill’s jeans as he snakes his way through a rolling research field just outside the quiet college town of Pullman. Gill, a wheat geneticist at Washington State University, gently rakes his fingers over the golden rows of possibility, their spiky crowns trembling in the evening breeze. (Read More)

Climate Change Threatens Agriculture, but Genomics Comes to Rescue

BANGALORE: Kulvinder Gill, professor of breeding and genetics at the Washington State University in the US, describes himself as a dreamer and an optimist. One of his dreams is to make sure food production does not decline over the next few decades, when increasing temperatures act on the yields of major crops. (Read More)

 

USAID

WASHINGTON, D.C.—President Obama today announced that Feed the Future, his signature global hunger and food security initiative, is delivering on his promise to reduce hunger and malnutrition through agricultural development. New data demonstrate that, thanks in part to Feed the Future and other U.S. Government efforts, stunting rates have declined in Ethiopia, Ghana, and parts of Kenya by between 9 and 33 percent in recent years, while areas in Uganda have seen a 16 percent drop in poverty.
