#ASTACSS Explores Hybrid Wheat

Cindy Zimmerman

The CSS in ASTA CSS & Seed Expo stands for corn, soybeans and sorghum, but in recent years a little wheat has crept into the rotation.

“Hybrid Wheat – What is Different This Time?” was the title of the last session at the 2020 Seed Expo, featuring a panel of experts from the world of wheat. One of them was Jessie Alt, Global Wheat Lead for Corteva Agriscience. You might remember Dr. Alt from a few years ago when she starred in a video on plant breeders for the American Seed Trade Association.

In this interview, Alt discusses the role of newer breeding techniques and genomic knowledge enabling and complementing hybrid wheat breeding.
