Wheat quality targets will depend on the end user’s required specification e.g. livestock feed or milling for bread or biscuit flour. The main traits to consider are grain protein, specific weight, Hagberg Falling Number (HFN) and starch content.
Crop nutrition programmes have an impact on the quality of the harvested grain and should be planned according the targeted quality parameters. To achieve the highest value for the grain the grower often has to meet a combination of specifications.
