2019 Commercial Wheat Varieties

  1. Dagmar’ (PVP application pending from Montana State University) is a solid-stemmed hard red spring wheat intended for acreage infested with the wheat stem sawfly.  Dagmar has shown excellent dryland yield potential and high gluten strength.
  2. Amarillo’ (PVP application pending from UC Davis) is a hard white spring with high levels of yellow pigment in the flour. The expected market for this variety is the artisan baker market and consumers interested in the nutritional value of food.
  3. UI Bronze Jade’ (PI 691501) hard white winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was developed and released by the Idaho Agricultural Experimental Station in 2019. Compared to ‘UI Silver’, UI Bronze Jade had significantly higher grain yield, shorter plant height, better resistance to stripe rust, and comparable bread-baking quality. UI Bronze Jade is adapted to irrigated and dryland production environments in southeastern Idaho and in rainfed environments in northern Idaho. The high grain yield was contributed by more productive spikes and spikelet numbers.
  4. Winner’ (SD14115-5) is a hard red winter wheat cultivar developed by the South Dakota Agricultural Experimental Station with unusually broad adaptation to the eastern half of the Northern Great Plains. ‘Winner’ has medium height and medium maturity with higher yield potential, good baking quality, and moderate resistance to stem rust. (recommended for release in fall 2019)
  5. Draper’ (SD14113-3) is a hard red winter wheat cultivar developed by the South Dakota Agricultural Experimental Station with a limited target region, specifically western South Dakota. ‘Draper’ has improved yield potential with average test weight, grain protein, and good milling and baking quality. It is resistant to soilborne mosaic virus. (recommended for release in fall 2019)
  6. ‘SD13062-2’ hard red winter wheat germplasm with moderate resistance to FHB (it has a comparable level of resistance to cv. Everest). In addition, SD13062-2 has good yield potential with above-average grain protein content and test weight.

  14. ‘AM Cartwright’ is a hard red winter wheat variety developed by Kansas State University. It has competitive yields, excellent disease resistance package, and good baking quality. PVP application pending.
  15. AR01040-4-1’ (PVP application pending) is a common wheat variety released by the Board of Trustees of the University of Arkansas from the University of Arkansas.
  16. ‘Net Cl+’ is a hard red spring wheat variety released by WSU with two-gene resistance to Imazamox.  It is broadly adapted with Hessian fly resistance, adult plant resistance to stripe rust, very good yield, test weight, and grain protein concentration.  Approved for release in 2019.  PVP will be submitted winter 2020.   
  17. ‘Stingray CL+’ is a soft white winter wheat cultivar released by WSU with two-gene resistance to Imazamox.  It also carries the Pch1 gene and Yr17 gene for disease resistance.  Stingray CL+ has the Rht-B1b dwarfing allele and carries the Ax1+Ax2* alleles as GluA1 and the Dx2+Dy12 alleles at GluD1. It is broadly adapted across the Pacific Northwest and has very good end-use quality. Submitted to PVP and pending.
  18. ‘Scorpio’ is a hard red winter wheat released by WSU for its excellent tolerance to low pH soils.  This line has very good strip rust resistance, and carries the resistance gene Yr17 among other unknown sources.  Scorpio carries the Rht-B1b allele for dwarfing and the Dx5+Dy10 alleles at GluD1.  Scorpio does exceptionally well in no-till production systems. PVP will be submitted fall 2019.
  19. ‘Devote’ is a soft white winter wheat released by WSU for production in <12” rainfall zones of Washington.  This line has excellent disease resistance, as it carries the Pch1 gene, Yr17 gene, Lr68 gene, and a stripe rust resistance gene from the cultivar Eltan.  It is also tolerant to snow mold and Fusarium crown rot and has very good cold tolerance and end-use quality attributes. PVP will be submitted fall 2019.
  20.  ‘MN-Washburn’ (PVP to be submitted) is a hard red spring variety released by the UMN wheat breeding program in 2019 that has competitive grain yield and good lodging resistance.  MN-Washburn is resistant to prevalent races of leaf and stripe rust and is moderately resistant to Fusarium head blight and bacterial leaf streak.
  21. MI14R1140’ is a soft red winter wheat released by the Michigan Crop Improvement Association.
  22. ‘MI14W1039’ is a soft white winter wheat released by the Michigan Crop Improvement Association.

2019 Mapping Populations

  1. University of Idaho deposited two doubled haploid mapping populations (UI Platinum x SY Capstone and UI Platinum x LCS Star) that are being used in cloning of yield component projects.
  2. Texas A&M University developed 3 mapping population: a) A set of 222 F6 RILs from the cross of TAM 204/Iba. The population was genotyped and yield components were collected from five environments in Texas. b) A set of 180 F6 RILs from TAM 112/Duster that was genotyped and tested in six environments in Texas and Oklahoma mainly for drought tolerance. c) A set of 178 F6 RILS from TAM 111/TX05A001822 that were tested in five environments. QTL analyses are under way. Bread-making quality was analyzed in three environments.
