This RIRDC report presents the results of trials aimed at providing the organic grain industry with potentially new and more reliable higher yielding genotypes of spelt. The report also provides information on improved agronomic practices for organic spelt production including optimal sowing dates, sowing rates, weed management, disease susceptibility and nutritional requirements. An analysis of the quality attributes of new spelt genotypes provides processors of spelt with milling and end-use information.
This report is targeted at organic and conventional grain stakeholders including producers, producer groups, processors, retailers, consumers, exporters, organic certification agencies, extension agronomists and research and development agencies.
