NDSU Wheat Varieties

'Elgin-ND' Hard Red Spring Wheat (RFP-207)

'Elgin-ND' was developed by the Hard Red Spring Wheat Breeding Program at North Dakota State University and released by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station in the summer of 2012 with first distribution in 2013. 'Elgin-ND' is widely adapted to the ND and spring wheat region with very high yield compared to the most grown cultivars, including 'Glenn', and 'Barlow'.

'Velva' Hard Red Spring Wheat (RFP-181)

'Velva' was developed by the Hard Red Spring Wheat Breeding Program at North Dakota State University and released by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station in the Summer of 2011. 'Velva' has a broad adaptation to the spring wheat region, but it fits better in Central and Western ND environments. It has excelled performance, particularly where 'Reeder' is grown.

'Prosper' Hard Red Spring Wheat (RFP-180)

'Prosper' was developed by the Hard Red Spring Wheat Breeding Program at North Dakota State University and jointly released by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station and Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station in the spring of 2011. 'Prosper' has very high grain yield, better or at least equal to 'Faller'. It performs relatively well in Eastern ND and Western MN environments.

'Barlow' Hard Red Spring Wheat (RFP-165)

'Barlow' was developed by the Hard Red Spring Wheat Breeding Program at North Dakota State University and released by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station in the spring of 2009. 'Barlow' has high grain yield better or at least equal to 'Glenn', 'Alsen', and 'Reeder'. It tends to perform relatively well in Central and Western ND but still very competitive in Eastern regions of the State. It has medium straw strength. Barlow is a conventional to semi-dwarf height variety, with an early to medium early maturity. 'Barlow' has high water absorption and test weight. Overall, it has excellent milling and baking qualities better than 'Reeder' and 'Faller' and similar to 'Alsen' and other common NDSU cultivars.

'Mott' Hard Red Spring Wheat (RFP-164)

'Mott' was developed by the Spring Wheat Breeding Program at North Dakota State University and released by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station in the spring of 2009. 'Mott' is a hard red spring wheat developed primarily for its resistance to the wheat stem sawfly and adaptation to the western region of North Dakota where sawfly can limit production. It is a medium-tall, awned wheat that matures approximately 2 days later than 'Reeder' and 'Choteau'.

'ND901CL Plus' Hard Red Spring Wheat (RFP-161)

'ND901CL Plus' was developed by the Hard Red Spring Wheat Breeding Program at North Dakota State University and released by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station (NDAES) in the spring of 2010. This is the first Clearfield herbicide-resistant cultivar released by the experiment station. 'ND901CL Plus' was selected from the first HRSW generation with the Clearfield resistance based on a two-gene system. Its parentage includes 'Grandin' and 'Kulm', which are two HRSW released by NDAES. The sources of Clearfield resistance genes were from genotypes provided by the BASF Corp.

'Faller' Hard Red Spring Wheat (RFP-144)

'Faller' hard red spring wheat is expected to be best adapted to eastern and central North Dakota, western Minnesota and northeast South Dakota. 'Faller' has excellent yield potential under more optimum growing conditions.

'Howard' Hard Red Spring Wheat (RFP-134)

'Howard' is a hard red spring wheat (HRSW), semi-dwarf variety that is best adapted to the growing conditions in central and western North Dakota, but also has performed well in eastern North Dakota. Howard is expected to replace acreage of 'Reeder' and 'Parshall', both NDSU-released varieties.

'Glenn' Hard Red Spring Wheat (RFP-121)

'Glenn' was developed by the NDSU hard red spring wheat (HRSW) breeding program and released by the ND Agricultural Experiment Station in the spring of 2005. 'Glenn' was selected from the progeny of the cross: ND2831/'Steele-ND'. The experimental HRSW line ND2831 is a derivative of Sumai3 and has Fusarium head blight (scab) resistance similar to 'Alsen'. The objective of this cross was to combine the scab resistance sources of 'Alsen' and 'Steele-ND', along with high yield, excellent quality, and standability into one package.

'Steele-ND' Hard Red Spring Wheat (RFP-98)

'Steele-ND' was developed by the hard red spring wheat breeding program at NDSU and released by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station in the spring of 2004. 'Steele-ND' is a high yielding, high quality variety which exhibits some tolerance to Fusarium head blight (scab).
