Technical Abstract: Commercially grown cultivars and experimental lines of hard red spring wheat were grown by breeders at cooperative experiment stations throughout the major spring wheat growing regions of the United States. Hard spring wheat was tested for kernel, milling, flour, dough, and baking quality. In 2000/2001 over 3000 samples of hard spring wheat were tested for quality. This report is intended to provide breeders with quality data as an aid when selecting and releasing experimental lines for commercial production, comparing experimental lines with existing commercial cultivars, and evaluating the effects of different environmental conditions on durum wheat quality. Wheat producers, domestic and international markets, millers, pasta processors, and commodity groups use this report to evaluate the milling and baking potential of new wheat lines that would meet their specific needs.
