Common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is one of the most important cereal food crops. Breeding for high yielding what varieties is curtail role but no less is importance of breeding high quality wheat varieties that is essential for bread making industry. Wheat quality is assessed on the basis of physical, chemical, rheological and baking tests. For this reason at cereals industry has been a long history of using descriptive empirical measurements of rheological properties to predict breadmaking quality. In this paper, grain yield and technological quality of five wheat varieties (Radika, Milenka, Bistra, Treska and Altana) from the breeding program at Institute of Agriculture-Skopje, Macedonia, were examined in two years (2007/2008 and 2008/2009). Bistra has shown significantly the highest yield among wheat varieties over two years of study carried out. Altana has shown the highest protein content, sedimentation value, dough energy, extensograph extensibility and ratio (resistance/extensibility).According to technological quality among varieties, Altana has shown the best quality and belongs to A1-A2 quality class, following Treska and Milenka (A2-B1) and Radika and Bistra (B1).
