INTERNATIONAL NURSERY REPORTS
Advanced IWWIP germplasms and introduction materials are distributed every year through International Nurseries for observing their performance in different regions and providing germplasm to breeding communities.
The reports are including the cooperators, pedigree, days to heading, plant height, diseases in the regions, final grain yield and other observations collected from collaborators are available at Nursery Data section in web page.
IWWIP Annual Meeting
The IWWIP annual meeting will be held in Izmir, January 25-26, 2020. All the IWWIP activities in 2018-2019 and perspectives for 2020 and beyond will be discussed.
The International Nurseries for season 2020 were distributed on request
Around 250 sets of four international nurseries were prepared and distributed to cooperators who requested the IWWIP materials through www.iwwip.org.
Speed Breeding Greenhouse-IWWIP, Izmir
08 November 2018
Now the second cycle of breeding germplasm grows in IWWIP Speed Breeding Facility, Izmır. The plants have been growing very well and speedy. This germplasm cycle started in early August with 5 weeks vernalization and greenhouse transplantation in October. The time needed between planting in the greenhouse and anthesis was 50 days and another 30-40 days for maturity. Few winter populations are behind in development probably due to longer vernalization needs. We will start to harvest end of the November 2018.

Effect of climate change on spring wheat yields in North America and Eurasia in 1981- 2015 and implications for breeding
Wheat yield dynamic in Canada, USA, Russia and Kazakhstan from 1981 till 2015 was related to air temperature and precipitation during wheat season to evaluate the effects of climate change.

Speed Breeding Facility
The new greenhouse opened at Aegean Agricultural Research Institute in Izmir and will be used for speed breeding in International Winter Wheat Improvement Program. The capacity of facility is for 25.000 plants per cycle and will be used to have 3 generations in 13-14 months.
