Arcadia Biosciences Receives U.S. Patent for High Fiber Wheat with Improved Yield
"The invention of this higher-yielding high fiber wheat allele further demonstrates our commitment to enhancing the strength of our improved wheat platform," said
Multi-year field studies conducted by Arcadia found that wheat breeding lines carrying the higher-yielding allele produced an average of 6 to 9 percent higher yields, with some resulting in as much as 30 percent higher yields. Field trials further indicated there may be other benefits to this innovation, including reduction in sensitivity to the damaging effects of cold at specific growth stages. As example, wheat carrying the allele produced 25 percent higher yield than wheat without the allele when plots were damaged by frost at the very sensitive heading stage.
The higher-yielding allele is the output of Arcadia's ArcaTech technology platform and is the latest among a suite of patents Arcadia has licensed to Arista Cereal Technologies and
