PGDC Evaluating Potential New Crop Cultivars

The Prairie Grain Development Committee is holding its Annual Meetings online this year.
 
This week's forum focuses on the testing, evaluation, and recommending of potential new crop cultivars.
 
Dr Richard Cuthbert, a wheat breeder from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada's Swift Current Research and Development Centre has put forward two new CPS lines this year, HY2095 and HY2096.
 
"HY2095 has quite high grain yield, it's roughly 9% higher yielding than AC Penhold, its Midge tolerant and has very good stripe rust resistance. HY2096 is very strong straw, 6% higher yielding than Penhold and Midge tolerant again. So, they're more suited to probably the Alberta region. HY2096 also has quite a bit better FHB resistance."
 
HY2095, CPS_red
 
• Yield +9% over AAC Penhold; 29% over Carberry
• Sm1+ OWBM tolerant
• Maturity similar to AAC Penhold
• Height +9 cm AAC Penhold; lodging similar to AAC Foray
• FHB similar to AAC Penhold
• Stripe Rust / Stem Rust / Leaf Rust = R
• Common Bunt = Intermediate
• Quality testing has indicated eligibility for CPS_red market class
 
HY2096, CPS_red
 
• Yield +6% over AAC Penhold; 23% over Carberry
• Sm1+ OWBM tolerant
• Maturity similar to AAC Foray
• Height +12 cm AAC Penhold with very strong straw
• FHB better than AAC Penhold
• Stripe Rust / Stem Rust / Leaf Rust / Common Bunt = R
• Intermediate resistance to Ug99 stem rust variants
• Improved Falling Number
• Quality testing has indicated eligibility for CPS_red market class
 
Cuthbert notes along with the two CPS lines there are also two lines up for registration from Swift Current's Durum Breeding Program with  Dr Ruan.
 
DT2005, CWAD (Y. Ruan, Swift Current)
 
- Yields 2.8% more than Brigade (the highest yielding check) with similar grain protein
- Plant height equal to AAC Cabri; Lodging resistance similar to Brigade
- Maturity similar to Strongfield
- High test weight better than checks and kernel size larger than AAC Cabri
- Leaf Rust / Stem Rust / Stripe Rust / Common Bunt = R
- Moderate resistance to Ug99 stem rust variants
- FHB reaction equal to Brigade (MS*)
 
DT2009, CWAD (Y. Ruan, Swift Current)
 
- Yields similar to Brigade (the highest yielding check)
- Grain protein similar to Strongfield
- Plant height and maturity similar to AAC Cabri; lodging resistance equal to Brigade
- Test weight similar to AAC Cabri with larger kernel size
- Leaf Rust / Stem Rust / Stripe Rust = R
- Common Bunt = MR
- Moderate resistance to Ug99 stem rust variants
- Low FHB symptoms (MR-I) and lower DON accumulation (MR-MS)
