UAF Develops Climate Resistant Wheat Varieties To Boost Production

High-yielding wheat varieties are being developed by the University of Agriculture Faisalabad (UAF) and Washington State University in an effort to increase average production and promote food security.

The Agri Tourism Club and the Pakistan US Alumni Network jointly hosted the “Baisakhi” wheat harvesting festival on Thursday.

UAF Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Iqrar Ahmad Khan made this statement about high-yielding wheat varieties. A number of booths selling rational foods, cultural performances, and cutting-edge farming equipment were also set up.

According to Dr. Iqrar, accepting latest developments is a requirement for trying to turn agriculture into a successful industry that will increase farmers’ livelihoods and supply the world’s increasing population with the wheat it needs. He claimed that the fair communicates happiness to the farmers.

This year’s harvest was a bountiful one for the nation. As per him, 30,000 UAF students visited farmers throughout the province last year at the order of the Punjab government to inform them of contemporary wheat sowing practises.

He claimed that wheat production per acre needed to be brought into line with the output of industrialised countries. The Department of Agronomy organised farmer training sessions on contemporary farming practises.

It was founded in 1906 as the Punjab Agricultural College and Research Institute, Lyallpur, which later changed its name to the University of Agriculture, Faisalabad (UAF).

In the twenty-first century, UAF will push the boundaries of knowledge to create unique, interdisciplinary teaching, research, and outreach programmes that are essential for the development of agriculture and rural areas.

The UAF’s position as one of the top research universities in the world and a resource for Pakistan’s rural and agricultural development will be strengthened through the implementation of the Vision 2030 Strategic Framework.

The University of Agriculture Faisalabad is divided into faculties for agriculture, agricultural engineering and technology, food nutrition and home economics, social sciences, animal husbandry, food sciences, biotechnology, biochemistry, plant and animal breeding, veterinary science, doctor of pharmacy, mathematics, statistics, and the natural and physical sciences.
