Scholarcy highlights

  • World wheat grain yields increased substantially in the 1960s and 1970s because farmers rapidly adopted the new varieties and cultivation methods of the so-called ‘green revolution’
  • We show that Rht-B1/Rht-D1 and maize dwarf-8 are orthologues of the Arabidopsis Gibberellin Insensitive gene
