The utility of near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy for wheat quality assessment
MetadataShow full item record
End-use quality improvement is an important objective in most wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) breeding programs. Limited sample size, destructive parameter testing, and the short duration between harvest and planting of winter wheat are challenges for testing early-generation breeding material for end-use quality parameters. Near-infrared reflectance (NIR) spectroscopy is a rapid and non-destructive technique that could facilitate early-generation selection for end-use quality. The precision and accuracy of an NIR equation for prediction purposes is dependent on the construction of a reliable ...
