Researchers: Harry Sapirstein Paul Bullock
Keywords: Genomics Production
Start Date: 2015
Status: In Progress

Project Length: 4+ Years (2015-2020)

Objectives: The research is designed to test different factors of environmental impacts on CWRS wheat quality with a focus on gluten strength related measures.
MWBGA funding: In-Kind Research Management

Total Funding Approved: $1,773,400

Funding Partners: Alberta Wheat Commission, Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission, Western Grains Research Foundation, MWBGA and Agri-Food Research and Development Initiative (ARDI) part of Manitoba’s GF2 programs

Benefits to MB Producers: Improved understanding of wheat quality variation across the Prairies and a better ability for the industry to meet customer requirements for quality bread products.
