HARD RED SPRING WHEAT VARIETY PERFORMANCE AT CARRINGTON IN 2001.

Twenty-seven hard red spring (HRS) wheat varieties were tested in two dryland trials and an irrigated trial at the North Dakota State University Carrington Research Extension Center in 2001. Averaged across the 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%.
