Variety and N-fertilizer level significantly increased the protein content and sedimentation value. However, at the highest level of N fertilizer, the sedimentation value did not increase linearly with the protein content. There may be an upper limit to the ability of the wheat to utilize nitrogen in the production of true gluten proteins. Interactions of variety ✕ fertilizer level for both protein content and sedimentation were nonsignificant.
