Fusarium head blight, agricultural experiment stations, agronomic traits, disease resistance, dwarf cultivars, genes, grain yield, growers, hard red spring wheat, leaf rust, mature plants, plant pathogenic fungi, protein content, quantitative trait loci, river valleys, straw, Minnesota, North Dakota
Grain yield, protein content, and straw strength are the three primary traits that growers consider when selecting wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars in the Red River Valley region of Minnesota and North Dakota. ‘Norden’ (Reg. No. CV‐1136, PI 667104) was released by the University of Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station in 2012 because it represented a unique combination of these traits, in addition to good resistance to leaf rust (Puccinia triticina Eriks.) and Fusarium head blight (FHB, caused primarily by Fusarium graminearum Schwabe). Norden is a midmaturity, semidwarf cultivar that was selected in part because it contains the Lr34 gene for adult plant leaf rust resistance and the Fhb1 quantitative trait locus for FHB resistance.
