  • WISH-ROOTS milestone - seeds ready to ship!

    Our pilot/propagation trial in UK is completed. We have obtained enough seeds (>200 kg) to grow our 20 wheat cultivars in six countries throughout the next two seasons (2023-2024.) and assess their impact on soil health . We have also collected some interesting preliminary data .on root architecture and rhizosphere microbiome. Keep tuned for further updates.

  • Ready to harvest - pilot trial 2022

    The WISH-ROOTS pilot trial in UK joins the 2022 record-breaking, earliest ever harvest. Next week our 20 wheat cultivars (bread and durum ) will be carefully packed and send to our partners for the 2023/2024 trials. Over the next two summers we will have these spectacular plots repeated simultaneously in six countries - three continents..

    WISH -ROOTS Making soil health a breeding target WISH-ROOTS: Wheat Roots in Soil Health The goal of WISH-ROOTS is to enhance the potential beneficial effects of wheat cultivation on soil health through the identification of root traits that can improve soil structure and optimize nitrogen (N) cycling. More information News Subscribe to our Newsletters The WISH-ROOTS project has kicked off with a pilot trial at John Innes Centre, UK. The propagation of twenty bread and durum wheat landraces will provide the material for the field trials over the next two springs. ​ Video: Introduction of the WISH-ROOTS at the Annual Science Day - EJP Soil general meeting 2022 .
