Although a high-risk crop, oaten hay has the potential to outperform all other cereals with respect to gross margins... The widespread use of genetic analysis in agriculture is limited by economic factors... In the short term, fungicides used at seeding (seed dressings or applied in-furrow with fertiliser) and foliar fungicide sprays will mitigate risk and minimise losses...

Breakthrough finds wheat's vital sleeper gene.. Two bread wheat genes that provide resistance to pre-harvest sprouting - one of the main impediments to consistent grain quality - have been identified by CSIRO's Agriculture Flagship in a GRDC project... The resistance was thought to be due to the existence of genes collectively called 'dormancy genes' because of their ability to suppress germination (keep seed asleep, so to speak) under conditions that would otherwise lead to pre-harvest sprouting...

For early generation assessment of dough properties in breeding programs the mixograph is the preferred instrument while in later stage evaluations, where sample size is less of an issue, Brabender instruments are used... Considerable quality research has focused on predicting end product performance using dough rheological measurements and small-scale laboratory tests... Sweet biscuits usually contain higher levels of sugar and shortenings, and lower quantities of flour...

The results on the puroindoline gene alleles provide a significant amount of information on the genetic basis of the trait of grain hardness, a critical parameter for the commercial uses and export of wheat... The results show that the Australian gene pool is limited in the range of genetically-determined grades of hardness to only these two major types...
