NIFA-International Wheat Yield Partnership Program (NIFA-IWYP)

Program: 
Plant Breeding, Genetics & Genomics Programs

NIFA aims to support the G20 nations’ Wheat Initiative which is committed to coordinate wheat research in the areas of genetics, genomics, physiology, breeding and agronomy internationally. NIFA in coordination with the International Wheat Yield Partnership (IWYP), requests applications to seek breakthroughs for cereal breeding using new technologies and also discoveries that lead to significantly greater grain size, grain set and grain filling duration following embryo formation, in diverse environments, without compromising grain protein concentration in Triticeae species.
