Technical Abstract: Samples of standard cultivars and new selections of hard red spring wheat grown in cooperative experiments in the spring wheat regions of the United States are milled each year in the USDA/ARS Wheat Quality Laboratory. Wheat and their corresponding flours are evaluated for physical and chemical properties and the flours are baked to determine bread characteristics. The purpose of this report is to make available to the cooperators and other interested parties quality data on commercial cultivars and breeder's experimental lines of hard red spring wheat from the 1996 crop. The evaluation of wheat involves the analysis of kernel characteristics, milling performance, and baking performance.
