Abstract

The improvement of cereal quality traits is one of the main objectives in breeding programmes. The quality and nutritional value of cereal-based food products strongly depend on the two main components in the grain, protein and starch. Plant breeders have paid the greatest attention to wheat end-use quality, especially to protein content and composition. A new challenge for small-grain cereal breeders is to develop cereals with novel types of end-use quality. Breeding strategies are developed to determine the range of natural variation and apply methods to select new genotypes with modified starch composition as well as improved phytochemical and non-starch polysaccharide contents.
