Caption: Cross pollination. The hands of a researcher artificially hybridizing wheat (Triticum sp.). The researcher is removing the reproductive part of the flower from wild wheat plant. This will then be hybridized (cross-pollinated) with strains of wheat commonly used in agriculture. The aim of this work is to produce new strains of wheat which may be more resilient to diseases and environmental growth conditions (such as soil type and temperature).
