What is HeDWIC?

The Heat and Drought Wheat Improvement Consortium (HeDWIC) is a global research and capacity building network that makes it easier for wheat scientists to work together on solutions to the complex problems of heat and drought.

By harnessing the latest technologies in crop physiology, genetics and breeding, new varieties are being developed that are more climate resilient. HeDWIC takes wheat research from the theoretical to the practical by incorporating the best science into real-life breeding applications.
