Following are general and specific comments on the end-use quality assessment of the breeding lines included in the WRN for 1996/97 crop year.
    Western Regional Hard Winter Wheat Nursery

Samples are a composite of equal quantities of grain from Bozeman, MT, Logan, UT, Moscow, ID, Pullman, WA, and Rockland, ID. Grain of 82CAM097 and 95CAM012 were missing from the Rockland location and therefore could not be included in the composite.

Kharkof and Wanser both exhibit intermediate Single Kernel Hardness and high standard deviations suggesting that they are mixtures of hard and soft grain.

OR908482 and 82CAM097 both exhibit softer Single Kernel Hardness values and higher standard deviations. They were classified as SRW but are probably mixtures of hard and soft types.

92CAM012 has a relatively high Single Kernel Hardness value standard deviation.

Rapid Visco Analyzer and Flour Swelling Volume were conducted on the sole hard white, OR889176, and indicated that this line is probably a normal amylose type. Alkaline noodle color of this line was considered poor.

    Western Regional Soft Winter Wheat Nursery

Samples are a composite of equal quantities of grain from Moscow, ID, Pendleton, OR, and Pullman, WA. Grain of XWH1021 was missing from the Pendleton location and therefore could not be included in the composite.

WA7792 and WA7811 are mis-classified, they are HWWs. To receive routine pan bread and Alkaline Noodle Color evaluations, these lines should be included in the Western Regional Hard Winter Wheat Nursery.

ID515 exhibits an intermediate Single Kernel Hardness value and high standard deviation suggesting that it is probably a mixture of hard and soft grain.

(frequency distribution provided) was conducted on all entries; Rapid Visco Analyzer (RVA) was conducted on the soft white common entries. RVA values would suggest that all lines evaluated are probably a normal amylose types.

Brookfield Viscosity was conducted on all Club wheat entries.

    Western Regional Hard Spring Wheat Nursery

Samples are a composite of equal quantities of grain from Aberdeen, ID, Bozeman, MT, Logan, UT, Moscow, ID, and Tetonia, ID. Grain of CA1077 was missing from Logan and WA7824 was missing from Tetonia, therefore they could not be included in the composite.

Klasic and Serra exhibited their characteristically lower grain hardness. Hardness of CA1036 would be considered a potential classification problem.

Rapid Visco Analyzer and Flour Swelling Volume were conducted on the hard white entries. RVA values suggested that ID521 and ID 522 are probably one-gene waxy, reduced amylose types.

Alkaline Noodle Color was assessed on the Hard White lines. OR492292, ML107455, and ID520 through ID523 exhibited promising brightness values (L*) at 24 hrs.

    Western Regional Soft Spring Wheat Nursery

Samples are a composite of equal quantities of grain from Aberdeen and Moscow, ID, Pullman, WA, and Tetonia, ID.

Single Kernel Characterization System data were not available for ID506 and ID524.

The high Single Kernel Hardness standard deviation for ML42409 would suggest that this line is a mixture of hard and soft types. This sample also was mixture of red and white grain.

Rapid Visco Analyzer and Flour Swelling Volume were conducted on all entries. RVA values suggested that ID488, SDM50030, ID505, and ID506 are probably one-gene waxy, reduced amylose types.
