Genetically modified wheat is the way to go . . . according to the president of the seventh largest milling company in the United States.
Donald Mennel supports efforts to try and introduce GM wheat into the market place. Currently, farmers can't seed GM wheat . . . but they plant genetically modified canola, corn and soybeans.
Mennel says wheat is falling behind the other crops when it comes to yields. He's worried that wheat will become a ''backburner crop'' because it will be expensive to grow or be in limited supply.
Mennel was one of the keynote speakers at the 4th International Wheat Quality Conference last week in Saskatoon.
