The biggest problem in farming is in dry land. Due to the lack of good rainfall, clouds of disappointment appear on the faces of the farmers. If the rains are not good then the hopes of the farmers turn into disappointment. Now in such a situation, UK scientists have done research and prepared a new variety of wheat. Bumper production can be achieved by cultivating this variety of wheat even on dry land. At the same time, scientists have named this variety of wheat Rht13. This variety of wheat will give excellent production even on low moisture land or dry land.


Rht13 crop length will be shorter than conventional wheat. Farmers will get immense benefits from this crop. The most important thing is that it will give excellent yield even in areas with less water.
