The RC met ahead of the Plant and Animal Genome Conference (PAG) on January 8 in San Diego (USA). The Committee endorsed the creation of a new EWG in the field of “Wheat Agronomy - A cross-disciplinary systems approach to identify and remove factors responsible for regional yield gaps”. The RC also recognised the importance of setting up international programmes on Wheat Nitrogen Use Efficiency as well as on Wheat Heat and Drought tolerance, as proposed by the Nutrient Use Efficiency and Adaptation of Wheat to Abiotic Stress EWGs. The RC further agreed on criteria to be used to identify priority international research programmes for the future.
