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. More information: Dr. Beyhan Akin – email@example.com.
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.

Prof. Ronnie Coffman (BGRI Vice-Chairman) and Dr. Maricelis Acevedo (BGRI Executive Director) visit to Turkey, May 27 - June , 2018
Every year visitors come from outside to learn about IWWIP activities and make germplasm selection. This year visit will cover key breeding sites and will be combined with phenotyping workshop. Around 45 local and international visitors are expected.
