Looking beyond grain for overall benefit from wheat in mixed crop livestock systems

  1. 1. Looking beyond grain for overall benefit from wheat in mixed crop livestock systems Michael Blϋmmel1, Arun K Joshi2, Nils Teufel1 and Iain A. Wright1 1 International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI), India and Ethiopia 2 Centro Internacional de Mejoramiento de Maíz y Trigo (CIMMYT), Nepal Wheat for Food Security in Africa Conference Addis Ababa, 8-12 October 2012 1

  15. 15. ConclusionsIn times of peak demand in wheat straw prices can approach half that of the grainPrice premiums for higher quality wheat straws on average about 11 from intuitively small differencesIncluding straw traits in cultivar choice increases probability of having premium straw qualityVary strong clustering of cultivar types for grain and straw yield and for straw quality 15
