    ABSTRACT: Spring wheat and spring barley were grown in elevated atmospheric CO2 in controlled environments. Wheat was grown in monoculture and in competition with three weed species. In monoculture, wheat had 30% more grain yield and 28% less grain nitrogen in elevated compared to ambient atmospheric CO2. In competition, wheat had no significant increase in yield with elevated atmospheric CO2. In competition, grain nitrogen concentration was reduced in response to CO2 with the largest reduction occurring with the smallest competitor and the smallest reduction occurring with the largest competitor. Spring barley was grown in monoculture at three nitrogen fertilizer supplies. In elevated atmospheric CO2 there were significant increases in grain yield and reductions in grain nitrogen concentration at all levels of nitrogen supply. In both species the reductions in grain nitrogen concentration were large enough to affect current bread making processes.
