The yields of wheat in the UK and across much of the world have increased massively over the past century, from a few tonnes per hectare at the start of the twentieth century to current UK average yields of between eight and nine tonnes per hectare. Many factors have contributed to these increases, with genetic improvement by plant breeding being particularly important in the second half of the 20th century
