Abstract

The "Fair Average Quality" standard (which custom has abbreviated to "F.A.Q.") originated in South Australia in 1888 soon after that State entered the export wheat market. It was designed as a wheat trading standard to meet the needs of overseas buyers and was later adopted by the other Australian States.
