Diversity in Omani wheat landraces

Abdooumtes10 000 years ago, wheat was domesticated in the Levant Region.‎ It is believed that from that region, 3,000 years ago, wheat was introduced into Oman.‎ Since then, it has been cultivated in various oases of the country resulting in large genetic diversity adapted to the marginal conditions and high temperatures of Oman.‎ It is believed that preserving this genetic diversity directly benefits farmers growing wheat on these marginal lands.‎ To explore further the genetic diversity, lCBA has been indentifying the various Omani wheat landraces and comparing traits that are valuable to farmers.‎
