Technical Abstract: The thirty-third Durum Wheat Quality Report contains data for the 1996 crop. Samples of standard cultivars and new selections of durum wheat grown in cooperative experiments in the durum wheat regions of the United States were milled and evaluated by the Hard Red Spring and Durum Wheat Quality Laboratory on the campus of North Dakota State University, Fargo, ND. Durum wheat samples of at least 2 kg were milled in a Buhler experimental mill, or macro procedure, and further processed into spaghetti. Smaller wheat samples were milled using the micro procedure and were not processed into spaghetti. Although, small samples having acceptable kernel characteristics and dust color scores, if possible, should be included in the macro procedure the following year. The purpose of this report is to make available to cooperators the quality data on standard cultivars and new selections of durum wheat from the 1996 crop.
