As an important step in the context of agriculture to improve food security and the lives of farmers, the development of new and stronger varieties of wheat is of utmost importance. Similarly, to bring a new revolution in the agricultural industry of India, the Department of Plant Breeding and Genetics of Punjab Agricultural University has developed a new variety of wheat called PBW RS1. Agricultural scientists have prepared the PBW RS1 variety in 8 to 10 years by researching many varieties of wheat. The PBW RS1 is an example of excellence developed with impeccable design and expertise. This variety is superior in high productivity, performance, and disease resistance, thereby providing safe and high profits to the farmers.
