Australia Seeks Bigger Yields With Gene-Edited Wheat
Australia Seeks Bigger Yields With Gene-Edited Wheat0Australia has initiated a trial of gene-edited wheat that would increase productivity and make farming more environmentally sustainable. Led by InterGrain, an Australian cereal-breeding company, this project seeks to improve crop traits without introducing foreign DNA, setting the experimental crops apart from traditional genetically modified (GM) crops.

In collaboration with Inari, a U.S.-based agritech firm, InterGrain has imported several thousands of wheat seeds with hundreds of new genetic variations. These seeds are currently undergoing evaluation in a specialized greenhouse in southeast Queensland. The trials will expand to more than 45 sites across Australia during the 2025 growing season, with researchers focusing on gene combinations that could potentially boost wheat yields by at least 10 percent.

Using CRISPR-Cas9, a revolutionary gene-editing technology, and artificial intelligence to map potential gene edits, Inari can change multiple genes simultaneously. According to InterGrain and Inari, this technology could achieve gains 10 to 15 times faster than conventional plant breeding methods.

Gene-edited crops offer advantages like enhanced nutritional content, disease resistance, and improved resource efficiency, addressing global challenges like food security and climate change while increasing agricultural profitability. Efforts are underway to establish regulatory processes to allow Australia to export gene-edited crops, facilitated by their acceptance in regions like the U.S. and Japan. The European Union and China are also moving in this direction.
