Wheat grain yield and quality mainly depend on wheat storage proteins called gliadins and glutenins. Wheat genotype, fertilizers (Nitrogen and sulphur), growing conditions, transcription factor Gpc-B1, 1B/1R translocation are the important factors affecting grain yield, grain protein content and composition. My interest is to know how these factors interact and decide the final grain yield and baking properties.
