Iran will remain self-sufficient in wheat production to meet domestic demand during the current Iranian year (ending March 20, 2020), Iranian Deputy Agriculture Minister Esmaeil Esfandiari said on Sunday.
Scientists decoded the genome of rice in 2002. They completed the soybean genome in 2008. They mapped the maize genome in 2009. But only now has the long-awaited wheat genome been fully sequenced. That delay says nothing about wheat’s importance.
