Catalogue: GRDC Research Summaries
Barley grain defects (kernel staining, pre-harvest sprouting and black point) have resulted in tens of million dollars economic loss to the barley industry due to malting barley being discounted or down graded to feed... Development of phenotypic analysis tools for 3 A recently updated "Seedcount" image analysis system was evaluated for barley black point analysis as a replacement for the current visual measurement... Results from the project demonstrate that the Canadian "quality" gene has also resulted in sensitivity to pre-harvest sprouting...

Research funded by the Grains Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) has produced new germplasm, screening methods and selection tools to speed up the production of varieties less susceptible to pre-harvest sprouting, late-maturity alpha-amylase (LMA) and black point (BP)... LMA is genetic defect which, like sprouting, may be triggered by environmental conditions and results in the production of alpha-amylase - an enzyme which can degrade grain starch - measured by 'falling number' tests at delivery... " in collaboration with local and international researchers, the projects based at the University of Adelaide have identified genetic material which influences these defects, and developed new molecular marker tools," Associate Professor Mares said...

Since 1999 Grain Trade Australia has on an annual basis reviewed, produced and published on behalf of industry Wheat Standards (Standards) through its Standards Committee (Committee)... This section of the Manual relating to wheat has been produced following the annual review by GTA of Standards... At the conclusion of the test, record the time in seconds...

The project will ultimately seek to provide costeffective screening methods that enable pulse chemists to identify genotypes that have preferred cookingandsensoryattributes... The project will provide genetic materials and molecular tools for barley breeders to use in developing new malting barley varieties with minimum riskof head loss... The objectives of the project are to develop a scientific understanding of the genetic control and environmental basis of differences in HLW and screenings in wheat under normal growing conditions, and to developselection tools to help breeding programs developvarieties that willbe less prone to exhibit low HLW andhigh screenings...
