Interpretive Summary: Nine locations contributed useable data for this year's report. The Busch Agricultural Resources site was grown in both Bottineau and Minot rather than Park River ND (last years site). Data from Mead NE, Caro MI, Saskatoon, and Watertown SD were not submitted. All other data were used. Because of difficulties in obtaining reliable data from the Langdon site in recent years, the Langdon nursery was moved about 12 miles east near the town of Osnabrock, ND. This is the second year that the nursery was grown near Osnabrock. Average planting date was April 26th, the same as the 30-year average and 11 days earlier than last year. Average heading date was June 25th, two days later than the 30-year average. Average yield (76 bu/a) was only slightly higher than that of last year. Entries with the best yields were M104, Lacey (M98), ND16301, M108, and M103. Only three stations reported test weight; the average of 54.3 kg/hl was the poorest since 1991 and ranks last over the past thirty years. The greatest test weights were recorded for 2ND16461 (two row), Lacey (M98), Robust, MNBrite (MNS85), and M108. Lodging data were reported from only two locations, Carrington and Brandon. Very little lodging was observed at Brandon, possibly masking differences among the entries. The five entries with the least lodging were Drummond (ND15477), ND17190, ND15422, M104, and M107. ND15477 has been best in lodging resistance for 3 years. Average plant height was relatively tall at 90.6 cm. Shortest entries were M106, M104, ND17190, 2ND17275, and M107. Kernel plumpness data were reported only from the BARI sites, Bottineau and Minot. An estimation of Fusarium head blight severity was made at the Fargo and Osnabrock locations, while DON levels were obtained on samples from Osnabrock and Minot.
