Research Project: COOPERATIVE WORK WITH OSU ON REGIONAL AND EXTENSION WHEAT NURSERIES Project Number: 3607-43440-007-12
Project Type: Specific Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Sep 18, 2007
End Date: Jun 30, 2012

Objective:
Evaluation of wheat quality in entries from the regional wheat nurseries of the eastern U.S. in 2007, 2008 and 2009. Evaluation of early crop samples prior to fall planting decisions.

Approach:
Evaluation of regional wheat nurseries of the eastern U.S. in 2007, 2008 and 2009. Within each year grain samples will be received at the SWQL from regional nursery coordinators and evaluated at the laboratory by Ohio State University technicians using standard American Association of Cereal Chemists (AACC) methods for grain milling and flour evaluation. Quality evaluations will be submitted to staff at the SWQL for summary and delivery to the cooperators before the end of the calendar year in which they are submitted. Nurseries include the Eastern Uniform Soft Winter Wheat Performance Nursery, the Southern Regional Performance Nursery, the Gulf and Western Nursery, the Eastern Soft White Winter Wheat Nursery. Summaries of information will be posted on the web by SWQL for use by researchers and the public. Evaluation of early crop samples prior to fall planting decisions. Agronomists with Ohio State University will submit samples in July of each year for wheat quality evaluation. Quality evaluations will be submitted to staff at the SWQL for summary and delivery to the cooperators before the end of August in the calendar year in which they are submitted.
