MENDELU PHD student gets Selgen award for wheat testing Nicole Frantová, a student at the Mendel University in Brno, has proved in a dissertation test that winter wheat varieties maturing later are more tolerant to drought than early ones. Until now, research had suggested the opposite. This may be due to the fact that in the Czech Republic, drought arrives in spring. She received the Selgen Student Prize for her research. This year, the PhD student also added maize and sorghum to her experiments with wheat.
