First of its kind genetically edited wheat trial starting at Rothamsted
/

 

Back in August, Rothamsted Research was granted permission by Defra to run a series of field trials of wheat that has been genome edited, and, very soon, that wheat will be planted. This will be the first trial of its kind in the UK or EU.

Project Leader Professor Nigel Halford explains what makes this wheat special and how it might make our toast safer.
