AgriPro/Syngenta wheat breeding programs have continued to support wheat production and market from Pacific Northwest to the Great Plains in the US through top-performing variety development. AgriPro spring wheat varieties have been leading the wheat industry and consistently ranks in top grown varieties in Northern Plains. This presentation reviews current spring wheat breeding goals and challenges and overview of breeding methods including new technologies and tools. Furthermore, the program has been evolving into hybrid wheat program to support growers, industry and future agriculture.
