Effects of Two Virus Diseases on Milling and Baking Properties of Wheat Grain and Flour and on Probable Nutritive Value of Forage Wheat1
- Karl F. Finney and

Grain samples from wheat plants infected by soil-borne-mosaic or wheat-streak-mosaic virus had milling properties that were inferior to, protein quality and mixing properties that were equal to, and water absorption, protein content, and “as received” leaf volume that were distinctly superior to those of the corresponding controls. Forage samples of winter wheat varieties susceptible to and infected by wheat-streak-mosaic virus were significantly higher (0.1% level) in protein content than those of healthy controls.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
