Understanding Variant Soft Wheat Starch Behavior Due to Genotype and Environment Grant uri icon



  • Quality and end-use properties of soft wheat flours in the Pacific Northwest have been shown to vary significantly by cultivar, crop year, and growing location. The purpose of this project is to identify the compositional and/or structural features within the starch fraction that are responsible for the variable properties observed among flours and starches both differing and identical genetic background cultivated under diverse environmental conditions.
