A farmer named Seager Wheeler from Rosthern, Saskatchewan made further improvements to Marquis wheat. He won the first five world wheat championships and put Saskatchewan on the map. In 2011, his entry of the developed Marquis wheat earned him $1,000 (which was a lot of money at that time) at the New York Land Show. Wheeler used the money to pay off his farm.
Seager Wheeler developed an award-winning wheat.
