‘Camelot’ (Reg. No. CV-1036, PI 653832) hard red winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was developed cooperatively by the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station and the USDA–ARS and released in 2008. In addition to researchers at the releasing institutions, USDA–ARS researchers at Manhattan, KS, and St. Paul, MN, participated in the development of Camelot. Camelot was selected from the cross KS91H184/‘Arlin’ Sib//KS91HW29/3/NE91631/4/VBF0168 that was made in 1995. Camelot was selected as an F3:4 line (F3–derived line in the F4 generation) in 1999, and in 2001 it was assigned experimental line number NE01604. Camelot was released because of its superior grain yield performance, disease resistance, and end-use quality under nonirrigated production in Nebraska and adjacent states.
