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

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).
