Title: Durum wheat can grow successfully in a closed, self-supporting ecosystem
Author: Stasiak, M.; Gidzinksi, D.; Jordan, M.; Dixon, M.; Institute for Community Engaged Scholarship
Abstract: There were few differences between the nutrient and gluten contents of hydroponically- and field-grown durum wheat varieties. While Eurostar and Strongfield had higher yields, all varieties contained appropriate levels of gluten protein and were suitable for pasta-making. More research is needed to determine which wheat variety is best for closed life-support systems.
