Gene number affecting milling quality in a wheat cross (Norin 10 × Brevor-14) × Burt could not be determined using the partitioning method of genetic analysis. The components of variance were partitioned and a heritability of 35.50% was determined for this character. Estimates of expected genetic gain indicated good progress could be made in a recurrent selection program for milling quality as measured by the separation of bran and endosperm.
