Abstract
Wheat (Triticum Aestivum) is a self pollinating cereal crop. It has many uses as human food. Bread wheat is more common. It is largely milled into flour, which is used mainly for baking bread, making chapatti, mandazi, and assorted confectionery. Duma, having been bred for drought tol erance, can grow in the semi-arid arable areas. Duma requires at least 400-600mm of rain fall. Fertile, well drained soils with a neutral pH (6 -7). Duma can be grown in the mountain hills, uplands and foot of slopes of dry areas.
