Durum Western Region - GrowNotes™
Published: 1 Nov 2017
Durum wheat (Triticum turgidum) is closely related to bread wheat (T. aestivum), but is grown for pasta production. The highest grade of Australian durum wheat — ADR1 — is known for its extreme hardness, high protein, intense yellow colour and milling qualities that make it suitable for producing semolina. This is the finely ground grain that is used to make pasta.
