Abstract: We present a summary of the most recent measurements relevant to QuantumChromodynamics QCD delivered by the D0 and CDF Tevatron experiments by May2008. CDF and D0 are moving toward precision measurements of QCD based on datasamples in excess of 1 fb-1. The inclusive jet cross sections have beenextended to forward rapidity regions and measured with unprecedented precisionfollowing improvements in the jet energy calibration. Results on dijet massdistributions, bbbar dijet production using tracker based triggers, underlyingevent in dijet and Drell-Yan samples, inclusive photon and diphoton crosssections complete the list of measurements included in this paper. Goodagreement with pQCD within errors is observed for jet production measurements.An improved and consistent theoretical description is needed for photon+jetsprocesses. Collisions at the LHC are scheduled for early fall 2008, opening anera of discoveries at the new energy frontier, 5-7 times higher than that ofthe Tevatron.
