NDSU Gets $130,000 Federal Grant for Wheat Research

North Dakota State University has been awarded a federal grant of more than $130,000 for agriculture research.

North Dakota's congressional delegation says the money will be used for pest-resistant wheat research at NDSU's School of Natural Resource Sciences.

The delegation says the goal is to help to prevent damage from pests and increase yields.

The federal funds are made available by the Agriculture and Food Research Initiative grant program through the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
