With the leading wheat varieties in Oregon and Washington, OSU’s Wheat Breeding Program has a long standing reputation for success. Each year, OSU tests more than 40,000 genetically distinct lines specifically for the Pacific Northwest. With wheat breeding, quality testing, and extension, we are uniquely equipped to meet the needs of the farmer, the miller, and the baker. All of which grants Oregon State University as the most complete package for wheat research and variety development.
