Insight – The Queen of Sweet Wheat (Extended)


Doug sits down with Anne McKendry, an associate professor of wheat breeding and genetics in the Division of Plant Sciences. Since arriving at MU nearly 30 years ago, McKendry has become of the country’s most successful wheat breeders, heaving sent out several lines out to the Missouri and national markets – all of which have a very high resistance to the deadly Fusarium head blight fungus.

Insight is a production of the University of Missouri College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources.
