Quality of flours of 166 different wheat varieties and breeding lines from the 1980-1982 year crop was evaluated with Mixograph. Protein content had a correlation coefficient of 0.68 with sedimentation value and of 0.67 with bread volume. Sedimentation value showed highly significant correlation (r = 0.74) with bread volume. Positive significant correlations were found between protein content and sedimentation value vs. Mixography water-absorption, however the protein content and sedimentation value were not consistently related with mixing time or height to peak. Mixograph curve of the flour in a cultivar showed the specific pattern regardless the environmental conditions.
