Wheat is somewhat ignored, in some places

That’s according to Bill Gates, on his visit to The Bread Lab. May come as a surprise to CIMMYT and ICARDA, and to their partners at TraitGenetics. Or to the bunch of Italian farmers Jeremy interviewed for the latest Eat This Podcast. Or to everyone at the Land Institute and elsewhere working on perennial wheat. Maybe Mr Gates meant at his Foundation.

Not surprised about the ‘lack of knowledge’ about wheat since it’s not a tropical Africa crop – a region which is much of the focus of the Gates Foundation.
