Interpretive Summary: The SWQL critically evaluates nearly all the wheat cultivars marketed from Missouri to the Atlantic seaboard. It also publishes new methods and research in the area of milling and flour quality. This research is transferred through annual technical training to 30-40 local and international food manufacturing companies by workshops held each March in Wooster, OH and through on-site and on-line support during the year. The research review catalogs those reports for use by the industry for selecting cultivars and as a reference tool for future collaborations. Justification for Inclusion of Anne Sturbaum as a coauthor. Anne Sturbaum compiled the initial report from documents generated at the laboratory and provided original content on sections pertaining to the molecular biology of wheat quality.
Technical Abstract: The Research Review report summarizes the data generated by the Soft Wheat Quality Laboratory service and research programs during the year from March 2010 to March 2011. It includes the results of cultivar evaluations as well as summary of methods developed and results of collaborative projects. The total report is 222 pages.
