Twenty-seven hard red spring (HRS) wheat varieties were
tested in two dryland trials and an irrigated trial at the North Dakota State

three trials, the five highest-yielding HRS varieties were Ingot at 60.1
bushels/acre (bu/A), Dandy at 59.1 bu/A, Keystone at 58.0 bu/A, Knudson at 56.2
bu/A, and Walworth at 55.9 bu/A. The HRS wheat variety with the highest average
test weight was Ingot at 61.9 pounds/bushel (lb/bu), followed by Keystone at
61.2 lb/bu, Dandy and Parshall at 60.3 lb/bu, and Alsen at 60.1 lb/bu. Varieties
that had the highest average grain protein in the trials were Coteau at 17.1%,
Gunner and AC Superb at 16.5%, Grandin at 16.2%, and Alsen at 16.0%.
