(KSNW) – Any farmer knows there are good years and there are bad years, but what is already a tough job becomes even tougher when things like weather or plant diseases leave yields low.
Dr. Allan Fritz is one of the researchers at Kansas State University working on creating a wheat that is designed to combat those things.
He is an agronomy professor at Kansas State, who has made wheat his entire career from the different varieties to the diseases that threaten them.
His work may end with amber waves of grain, but it begins in the labs and greenhouses at K-State’s Wheat Genetics Resource Center.
