wheat falling number testing

Asked October 25, 2018, 3:41 PM EDT

Carl German Univ. of Deleware wrote about this in fact sheet ER06-02. He stated that DDA is investigating using a simple test kit to determine falling number in wheat. Is this available yet? Thank you, Gary

Hi Gary,

Thanks for the question. The Delaware Department of Agriculture does not have the ability to run the falling number test at this time. However, there are both public and private labs offering this service. Here's an example of a pubic lab: http://www.uvm.edu/extension/cropsoil/cereal-grain-testing-lab and a private lab: https://www.gpalab.com/
