- AAC Ryley is an awned semidwarf hard red spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) that yielded significantly more grain than check cultivar 5700PR while maturing 1.9 d earlier and growing 5 cm taller. The seed size was significantly larger than 5700PR and 5701PR but the test weight was significantly lower than both checks. AAC Ryley expressed resistance to prevalent races of leaf rust, stem rust, and common bunt. AAC Ryley expressed intermediate resistance to loose smut and moderate susceptibility to Fusarium head blight. AAC Ryley is eligible for grades of Canada Prairie Spring Red wheat.
