  • 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..
