A single species of grass called Triticum aestivum (or wheat) provides a large percentage of the energy supply for the world’s human population.

Michael Santhanam-Martin, first year lecturer of the Bachelor of Agriculture, will discuss what a wheat plant needs in order to grow and produce a wheat crop, and how farmers design and manage crop production systems to meet the plant’s needs. This lecture will be interactive, offering you a great opportunity to get involved and have fun!
