2018 Variety Release Information

ND18008GT is a 00.8 maturity soybean with resistance to glyphosate herbicide. ND18008GTGT is resistant to Race 4 of phytophthora root rot and appears to have the Rag1 gene which provides tolerance to soybean aphid under low aphid population densities. ND18008GT is sensitive to metribuzin herbicide. ND18008GT has purple flower color, tawny pubescence, brown pod with black hila color and dull seed coat luster. ND18008GT has the pedigree RG200RR X ND07-18569. ND07-18569 has the pedigree of RG607RR(BC3) X Dowling. Dowling has the Rag1 allele for soybean aphid resistance.

This variety contains a proprietary trait patented by the University of Illinois conferring tolerance to the soybean aphid. There will be specific requirements for a grower purchasing seed of this variety as required by a commercialization agreement between the U of I and NDSU/RF. Only certified seed will be permissible for planting. Customers may not save seed of varieties containing this trait for the purpose of replanting. Seed producers who purchase Foundation class seed for the production of Registered seed may replant their Registered class seed for the production of Certified class seed.

ND Grano (D09557) had similar yield to Carpio and had higher yield than all of the cultivars except Joppa when tested in variety trials across North Dakota. ND Grano possesses the Cdu1 gene for low Cd uptake which resulted in lower Cd uptake than all the cultivars in the test including the well-known Canadian cultivar AC Strongfield. ND Grano is higher in test weight but has smaller kernel size than Joppa and Carpio. ND Grano is similar in height to Carpio and Joppa. It is resistant to both leaf and stem rust diseases. Reaction to other leaf disease is similar to Carpio but less than Joppa. Field Fusarium head blight (FHB) disease severity of ND Grano is similar to Joppa but higher than Carpio. ND Grano had higher DON levels than Carpio and Joppa.

ND Riveland (D09690) had higher yield than all cultivars when tested across locations in North Dakota. ND Riveland possesses the Cdu1 gene for low Cd uptake which resulted in lower Cd uptake than all the cultivars in the test including the well-known Canadian cultivar AC Strongfield. ND Riveland was higher in test weight than Joppa and Carpio and it had the largest kernels among the tested cultivars. ND Riveland is taller than all of the cultivars with the exception of Tioga. It is resistant to both leaf and stem rust diseases and its reaction to other leaf diseases is similar to Carpio but lower than Joppa. ND Riveland had the lowest Fusarium head blight disease severity among all the cultivars tested. It had lower DON than Carpio but higher than Joppa.

ND Eagle (LC07ND055E) produced an average seed yield of 1940 lb/a across all 32 trials from 2011 and 2015. ND Eagle yielded slightly more than CDC Viceroy, a similar type lentil developed by the Crop Development Center in Canada. ND Eagle had excellent agronomic performance from 2011 – 2015. It had an average plant height of 35 cm average plant height index (canopy height at maturity/total vine length) of 0.65, indicating a semi-erect plant habit. ND Eagle flowers and matures 1-2 days earlier than the check varieties with no significant difference in yield compared to CDC Viceroy, but does yield significantly greater than Essex. Seed size is slightly smaller than Essex, slightly larger than CDC Viceroy and is within the acceptable range of the small green lentil market class. ND Eagle flowers approximately 54 days from planting, reaches an average height of 35 cm. Physical seed appearance of ND Eagle is considered adequate for the market. ND Eagle is similar to other lentil varieties and is susceptible to viruses including Pea Enation Mosaic Virus. It is susceptible to Sclerotinia white mold, Anthracnose and Botrytis gray mold, however, the disease reaction is similar to that of CDC Viceroy and other similar cultivars.
