Max Armstrong discusses rising interest in biotech wheat

Max Armstrong shares that while biotechnology is available for corn, cotton and soybeans, there is no GMO wheat. In the United States, the industry has shied away from that tool that some say could boost yield. Max shares that genetically enhanced wheat could help boost production and adds that biotech drought tolerant wheat is going to be planted in South America.

Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
