- It is well known that red-grained wheats show a wider variation in grain dormancy than white-grained wheats.
- Three species exist both as wild and domesticated wheats, einkorn, emmer, and breadwheat.
- One consequence was that the wheat grown in Britain had only about a quarter of the selenium content of imported wheats, due to lower levels in the soil.
- Hard wheats - like durum have a high gluten content (hi protein) and this is often used for bread and commercially made & dried pasta.
- Australia's high protein white wheats have been ideal for making bread, pastas and noodles - very attractive to the Asian markets.
- Seeds of diploid wheats and primitive tetraploid wheats (ssp. dicoccum) were obtained from Dr CI Kling (State Plant Breeding Institute, University Hohenheim, Stuttgart).
- Other Iron Age crops included the more ancient emmer wheat (Triticum dicoccum, which was grown on light soils), bread wheat, oats, rye, peas, Celtic beans, and flax.
- For instance, bread wheat is hexaploid with three (A, B, and D) genomes, each containing seven pairs of homoeologous chromosomes.
- The country's main crops are olives, vines, maize and hard wheats.
- Perhaps 2,000 years later, durum wheat hybridised with goat grass to give us bread wheat.
- The many thousands of grains comprise not just emmer and naked barley, but also bread wheat - which points clearly to the Neolithic - and linseed.
- Oats are among the most nutritious of cereals, containing as much protein as the finest bread wheat, and higher levels of fat than any other common cereal.
- The wilderness of saltbush and scrub has given way to orchards and vineyards, to wheats and rice.
- I share the seed with people who are interested in growing the old wheats.
- Barley is also an important cereal crop species ranking fourth in the world after rice, the wheats, and maize.
- The land at Scampston is mainly sandy, so only first wheats are grown.
- The creation of Marquis wheat, forerunner of nearly all bread wheats in western Canada, illustrates how plant breeders built on the legacy left by generations of farmers.
- Items to be covered include options in crop sequences, wheat breeding directions, tramline farming, potential for durum wheats, lupins and various pests and their control.
- Therefore, it was well accepted, as Candolle had suggested in 1886, that since wild wheats grow in the Euphrates basin, wheat cultivation must have originated there.
- Bulgaria's State Agriculture Fund has started selecting grain producers for buying out bread wheat for the newly set up Grain Commodity Fund.
