Wheat grain preharvest sprouting and late maturity alpha-amylase

  title={Wheat grain preharvest sprouting and late maturity alpha-amylase},
  author={Daryl J. Mares and Kolumbina Mrva},
Preharvest sprouting (PHS) and late maturity α-amylase (LMA) are the two major causes of unacceptably high levels of α-amylase in ripe wheat grain. High α-amylase activity in harvested grain results in substantially lower prices for wheat growers and at least in the case of PHS, is associated with adverse effects on the quality of a range of end-products and loss of viability during storage. The high levels of α-amylase are reflected in low falling number, the internationally accepted measure… CONTINUE READING
