Abstract or Summary

Wheat is the most widely grown cereal grain, occupying a significant portion of the total cultivated land. As drought is the major environmental stressor affecting crop production, yield maintenance under water deficit conditions appears as a highly desirable phenotype for crop improvement. The HaHB4 (Helianthus annuus homeobox 4) gene from sunflower encodes for a transcription factor involved in tolerance to environmental stress. The introduction of HaHB4in wheat led to the development of event IND-ØØ412-7 (HB4® wheat), which displayed higher yield in production environments of low productivity potential. Compositional analysis of IND-ØØ412-7 wheat, including 41 nutrients and 2 anti-nutrients for grain and 10 nutrients in forage, was performed. Results of these studies indicated that IND-ØØ412-7 is compositionally equivalent to non-transgenic wheat
