  • Durum Wheat

    Durum Wheat

    The work of selection of new genetic materials starts from the characterization of the existing biodiversity in the durum wheat species to develop new genotypes capable of combining high productivity, greater adaptability to different environmental conditions (resistance to biotic and abiotic) and higher technological and nutritional characteristics for industrial processing (high protein, good gluten quality, high yellow index and high content of...

  • Emmer Wheat

    Emmer Wheat

    The term 'farro' includes three species of cultivated hulled wheats: Triticum monococcum L. (einkorn, from German Einkorn, literally 'single grain'), Triticum dicoccum Schübler (emmer) and Triticum spelta L. (spelt).

This led to the constitution and release of new varieties characterized by high...
