The years of 2016 and 2017 will go down as bin-busters for Kansas State University plant breeders. K-State normally produces one wheat variety every one or two years, but in 2016 andso far in 2017, K-State breeders have produced six new varieties of wheat. The breedersalso were productive with canola, soybeans and grass, putting out two canola varieties,one soybean variety and the first turfgrass variety in several years. According to K-State plant breeders and licensing experts, these 10 new varieties will generate millions of dollars for the state, the university and Kansas farmers.
