I was wondering what was the gray object beside my jogging course.
It is the memorial of developing the hybrid wheat.
As shown above, "Wheat genetics entered a fresh phase with SAKAMURA's discovery(1918) that the species might have 14,28 or 42 chromosomes(diploid), and with KIHARA's work on the cytology of hybrids between with different numbers of chromosomes. It is a very small memorial object but the contributions made by two researchers must be huge in the history of agriculture. I think.
