Key messages for quality milling wheat

Update guidance on nitrogen and sulphur fertiliser use for winter milling wheat, to achieve optimum grain quality and milling specifications – varieties and growing environments.
1. Grain quality review – N supply, applied N and yield potential
2. Quantify grain responses to N and S fertiliser rate and timing
3. Impact of N and S on dough rheology and baking performance
4. Develop basis of N and S fertiliser guidance for milling wheat
5. Transfer fertiliser management guidelines to industry
