Dr. Steve Jones, from the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences at WSU and director of the Washington State University Bread Lab, will be visiting UC Davis and leading a PBC seminar on Tuesday, May 24, 2016 from 12-1:30 PM in PES 3001.
The Bread Lab at Washington State University breeds wheat for local systems outside of the commodity market. By working with local millers, bakers, maltsters, brewers, distillers and chefs the lab can experiment with wheats and other grains that don't fit an industrial model but do keep value where it is produced – in regional communities. Nutrition, flavor, and functionality are targets of the breeding program but the varieties developed must first work for the farmer.
