Bayer CropScience Expands Wheat Program

Wheat is often the forgotten stepchild when it comes to corn and soybeans.

“You could almost say wheat looks like the soybean crops of 15 years ago,” says Lykele Van Der Broek, chief operating officer for Bayer CropScience. While yields have not increased tremendously, he adds traits like glyphosate-tolerance have made soybeans a more attractive crop and one that’s easier to grow.

There are signs, though, that wheat is getting its groove back. Bayer CropScience executives discussed its expanded wheat investment earlier this month at the Commodity Classic in Nashville, Tennessee.
