Research

Research is the big ticket item at the WGC with more than 36 percent of the 2019-2020 budget dedicated to the category.

Scientists specializing in plant breeding at Washington State University and the Agricultural Research Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, come in for a large share of the funding.

The WGC also supports the evaluation of new public and private wheat varieties for quality and yield.

Barley breeding and evaluation are also found under the research category, as well as research to combat diseases and pests, control weeds and improve soil health.
