The goal of Texas A&M AgriLife Research wheat breeding program is to design varieties for specific adaptation areas and management programs in Texas. Through breeding efforts and better management practices, grain yield of wheat in Texas has increased from an average of 20 bushels per acre during the 1960′s, to 30 bushels per acre today (Texas Agricultural Statistics Service).
