Abstract

In a normal harvest about 90 per cent of Western Australia's wheat production is exported overseas, where it is used in a wide range of products including noodles, bread, "steamed" bread, chapattis and biscuits

Wheat breeders in W.A. therefore have the problem of developing new varieties suited to many end uses, not all of which have the same quality requirements.
