Interplay between different wheat cultivars and novel biostimulants to increase quality and yield in different agroclimatic conditions

Improving European farmers' competitiveness through technology transfer and innovation integration is essential to address future challenges in the sector. Increasing wheat grain quality and yield and enabling sustainable intensification is critical to a future Europe producing sufficient high-quality, affordable food.

To do so, the following will be addressed:

  • Identification of wheat cultivars with high yield and quality traits in different locations in Europe;
  • To test varieties identified in year one that are more drought tolerant and/or responsive to the biostimulants;
  • Validation of novel prototype biostimulants under field conditions to support grain yield and quality;
  • Agronomic advice for farmers.

These challenges will be delivered with a marketoriented approach by a multidisciplinary consortium involving: a large farmers' cooperative (Grupo AN), a research centre (CSIBIdAB), a university (University of Reading), and a rising food-star (GrainSense).
