Charles Saunders discovered Marquis wheat.

"Without the scientific and experimental research that was done by people such as Saunders and Wheeler it is doubtful that agriculture would have advanced as rapidly as it did in Saskatchewan. Faced with an extreme climate, many homesteaders found that they were trying to grow crops not suited to the land. Through the experimental work that was done new crop varieties were developed that made Saskatchewan the 'bread basket of the world.'"
