Scientists at Rothamsted Research, a U.K. agriculture research center founded in 1843, have asked for permission to carry out field trials of genetically-modified wheat.
The wheat carries out photosynthesis more efficiently, which results in a higher-yielding crop, according to a statement from Rothamsted. The research group said it submitted an application to the U.K. Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs to conduct farm tests in 2017 and 2018.
