Wheat School: Applying the GEM (GxExM) principle to wheat agronomy


There’s a reason just about every agronomic question can be answered by, “It depends.”

That’s because no single management decision is made alone: the genetics of the crop and the environmental conditions will always play a role in the success of any one management practice.

To further explain the concept of GxExM, this Wheat School episode features Brian Beres, researcher with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. Beres explains why and how these three factors all interact and how to apply the concept to agronomic decisions.

In short, genetics by environment by management equals the whole picture of agronomic decisions, which acknowledges the complexity of managing a biological system.
