Policy reform, increasing wheat acreage, declining prices and consumer pressures have significantly heightened the importance of wheat quality for securing markets and more stable prices for producers.
Wheat Quality covers key topics for wheat production in a European context. Current and future markets for wheat are reviewed. Quality criteria are explained in terms of end-user requirements and biochemical bases. Contributions examine breeding advances and the progress and challenges presented by transgenic wheat and hybrid production. The effect of the environment on quality is revealed through mechanistic and statistical approaches, controlled environment experiments and crop monitoring. The use, accuracy and prospects for pre-harvest prediction of quality is covered, as is an evaluation of the long-term effects of climate change on wheat quality. Agronomic influences on quality are reported. Specific topics include; the effects of strobilurins and new fungicides; implications of canopy management for quality; spatial variability in quality and its management.
