<p> HPI wheat R and D boosted by $2.5m grant </p>

US cereals genomics company Heartland Plant Innovations (HPI - Manhattan, Kansas) has been awarded a $2.5 million grant from the Kansas Bioscience Authority to develop improved wheat and sorghum varieties. HPI develops wheat doubled haploid lines (DH) for breeders and geneticists. The company has produced and sold nearly 15,000 doubled haploid lines to ten universities, three USDA laboratories, and two private companies over the last 20 months, the company points out. It is to move from its present site to the Kansas Wheat Innovation Center in December. The new site will enable HPI to produce up to 50,000 doubled haploid lines per year, it says.
