Experimental plots of wheat are examined for dryness the morning before harvest by John Kuehner at Spillman Farm, Washington State University. Spillman Farm was established in 1955 by Orville Vogel to evaluate new varieties of wheat, barley, and legumes. It has one of the largest wheat breeding programs in the USA. In this view, Kuehner is examining varieties that have been cross-bred (not GMO) to find varieties that are resistant to pests, fungus, and drought/heat but also have a superior yield and milling/baking qualities. WSU's seed is licensed to seed producers/growers and since 2012, WSU seed that is harvested cannot be replanted by end-users.
