Agronomists Find Wheat Varieties Resistant to Enzyme Depletion

Agronomists Find Wheat Varieties Resistant to Enzyme Depletion

Enzyme-mycotic seed depletion (EMSD) is a leading cause of loss in grain crops, destroying up to 60% of the crop. The development of EMSD is associated with adverse weather conditions when an increase in enzyme activity breaks down grain biopolymers into simple sugars and amino acids. Maintaining humidity helps plants deal with EMSD, but developing EMSD resistant crops is a more efficient way.

Research institutes in Russia led by RUDN University have discovered several wheat varieties that are resistant to EMSD.
