Syngenta scientists have discovered a new seed breeding technique called haploid editing, which will ultimately bring seed varieties to farmers faster. Details about the genome-editing technology were published in the research journal, Nature Biotechnology. The early research has focused on corn, but there is evidence the technique could be applied to wheat. The Syngenta researchers are also working on similar methods for other plants, including soybeans.
