MSU Research Team Discovers New Microbe in Wheat Stem Sawfly
September 25, 2019
BOZEMAN – A team of researchers in Montana State University’s College of Agriculture has discovered a previously unidentified microbe that lives symbiotically with the wheat stem sawfly, a pest that causes hundreds of millions of dollars in damage to wheat crops each year. The discovery, the result of a years-long project, provides the basis for future research that could be vital to combating losses due to wheat stem sawflies in Montana and beyond.
