grain protein content

Catalogue: GRDC Final Reports
The rapid, early phase of non-PPO darkening was strongly correlated with, and predicted by, protein content... Non-PPO darkening can be measured with small-scale methods suited to processing large numbers of samples and a major component of this darkening can be predicted simply from grain or flour protein content... Stage 1, an initial rapid darkening in the first two hours, Stage 2 an intermediate stage lasting a further 2 hours during which the rate of darkening slowed, and Stage 3 - lasting for the remainder of the experimental time period and beyond in which darkening was slower but linear over time...

Low protein in cereal grains is indicative of poor nitrogen supply to the grain during the grain fill period... Figure 6: Relative wheat varietal nitrogen uptake performance assessed by grain nitrogen content (kg/ha) - Qld and NW NSW NVT Trials - 2011.. Soil test data from autumn 2012 suggests that many paddocks had no benefit from normal 20 - 50 kg/ha summer fallow N mineralisation due to losses from waterlogging or the >20 kg/ha residual mineral N present in the post-harvest ( Figure 2)...

Low protein in cereal grains is indicative of poor nitrogen supply to the grain during the grain fill period... When grain protein in cereal crop is below a critical range it is strong evidence that yield for that season may have been restricted by nitrogen more so than moisture... The rate of nitrogen fertiliser applied is an attempt to bridge the gap between the nitrogen a soil can supply (mineralisation plus residual mineral-N minus denitrification), the crop demand for the season, and the efficiency of the crop accessing and transferring soil and fertiliser N to grain (Figure 2)...

The project was undertaken to develop crop management strategies to increase grain protein in lupins grown in Western Australia (WA)... It was concluded that the best option for farmers is to grow high protein cultivars... Two possibilities are suggested...
