Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is one of the major staple crops of the world and due to the high content of starch and unique gluten proteins, wheat grain is used for the synthesis of many end-use products. Grain quality of wheat is important criteria for food, feed and industrial processing. Therefore, the consequences of future increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) and rising temperature on quality parameters such as nutritional and bread-making rheological properties which require further understanding are addressed here

Potassium (K) is an essential nutrient for plant growth and is classified as a macronutrient due to large quantities of K being taken up by plants during their life cycle. A unique aspect of K is that it is not a part of any structural component of plants and as a soluble ion in the plant sap, it is required to activate at least 60 plant enzymes. Potassium plays an essential role in photosynthesis and metabolism of plants. It is important in carbohydrate breakdown which furnishes energy for plant growth. Potassium also increases drought resistance in plants and aid in reducing plant water loss

High-performance liquid chromatography is a chromatographic technique used to separate a mixture of compounds in analytical chemistry and biochemistry with the purpose of identifying, quantifying and purifying the individual components of the mixture. In HPLC, the analyte is forced through a column of the stationary phase (usually a tube packed with small round particles with a certain surface chemistry) by pumping a liquid (mobile phase) at high pressure through the column. The amount of retardation depends on the nature of the analyte, stationary phase and mobile phase composition.

Plant breeders' rights (PBR), also known as Plant Variety Rights (PVR), are rights granted to the breeder of a new variety of plant that give the breeder exclusive control over the propagating material (including seed, cuttings, divisions, tissue culture) and harvested material (cut flowers, fruit, foliage) of a new variety for a number of years. With these rights, the breeder can choose to become the exclusive marketer of the variety, or to license the variety to others. In order to qualify for these exclusive rights, a variety must be new, distinct, uniform and stable.

Non-apis native pollinators includes sweat bees, leaf cutter bees, mason bees, minner bees, cellophane/polyester bees and digger bees. They play a vital role in pollinating agricultural and horticultural crops. Diversifying the pollinators that are active on a farm makes good economic sense because it spreads risk across many bee species. Native non-apis bees need simple habitat management measures to flourish unlike honeybees.
