|Title:||Current research status and future challenges to wheat production in India|
|Abstract:||Wheat is a dominant crop in temperate countries and is being used as human food and livestock feed. The success of wheat depends partly on its adaptability and high yield potential, and also on the gluten protein fraction, which confers the visco-elastic properties that allows its dough to be processed into bread, pasta, noodles and other food products. In terms of human diet, it contributes nutritional factors, beneficial phytochemicals and dietary fibre components. The present review deals with current and future concerns that include sustaining the wheat production and quality with reduced inputs of agrochemicals, and developing lines with enhanced quality for specific end-uses, notably for biofuels and human nutrition.|
