Designing Future Wheat research areas

Our ambitious programme aims to underpin a fundamental and critical path to sustainable and productive agriculture.

We aim to achieve this through developing novel wheat pre-breeding germplasm with increased yield potential, disease resistance, climate tolerance, bread making and nutritional qualities, all made readily accessible and in referenced form for the wider plant community and commercial end users.

Designing Future Wheat will deliver these resources through co-ordinating our national wheat expertise across the world-leading BBSRC institutes and university programmes.

Our research is organised into four work packages:

Work Package 1
Increased efficiency and sustainability 

Work Package 2
Added value and resilience

Work Package 3

Work Package 4
Data access and analysis
