Modern bread wheat
originated around 10,000 years ago in the region of modern-day Turkey from a cross between durum wheat and a wild grass (Aegilops tauschii), while the grain we call spelt stems from cultivated emmer and various types of bread wheat
Study of drought tolerance of bread wheat
(Triticum aestivum L.) genotypes in seedling stage.
The type of wheat detailed by 200 scientists from 20 countries is Chinese Spring (Triticum aestivum) a variety of bread wheat
which is the world's most widely cultivated crop, said the study led by the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC).

samples," Foods, vol.
Turkey produced 46% of Durum wheat and 14% of bread wheat
in this region in 2013.
The breakthrough came with their discovery of two genes that control kernel texture in soft bread wheats
, namely, Puroindoline a (Pina) and Puroindoline b (Pinb).
Overall, selection index consisting of four traits viz., grain yield per plant, biological yield per plant, number of grains per main spike, 1000-grain weight and harvest index could be advantageously exploited in the bread wheat
(2012) determined genetic diversity of 30 bread wheat
accessions using agro-morphological traits and molecular markers.
Water shortage and energy crisis are also there, so farmers prefer to use waste water due to ease of availability and high concentration of nutrients, that waste water is a chief cause of heavy metals accumulation in bread wheat
At their third meeting with wheat farmers at the Ministry of Agriculture, flour producers offered 11 denars per kg of first-class bread wheat
. According to Nikolco Georgiev from Mak Mlin, the goal of the flour producers is to fetch a minimum price acceptable to farmers too.
The kernels are also larger and more vitreous than those of bread wheat
. The durum endosperm contains about twice the concentration of xanthophylls or luteins (not carotene) pigments when compared to that of bread wheat
It is a quality produce trading into a generally higher quality food market and fetches higher price than bread wheat
The International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium (IWGSC) published in the international journal Science a chromosome-based draft sequence of the bread wheat
The draft sequence is a major landmark towards obtaining a complete reference sequence of the hexaploid bread wheat
genome, the ultimate aim of the International Wheat Genome Sequencing Consortium.
Seeds recovered at two herder campsites in Kazakhstan represent the earliest evidence of the combined use of bread wheat
and broomcorn millet, say anthropologist Robert Spengler of Washington University in St.
