The wheat classification process involves assessing the inherent quality characteristics of a new variety, focusing on processing and end use performance. Lab assessment is conducted on trial plots where test lines and control varieties are grown together, over a minimum of three seasons, for a final classification.
Requirements and Testing
The complete set of requirements for an application to the Panel for classification is contained in the Classification Guidelines.
A breeding organisation must execute a Services Agreement with Wheat Quality Australia, and conduct all the testing required, before an application can be assessed.
