Interpretive Summary: 'Jerry' is a hard red winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivar developed by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station in cooperation with the USDA-ARS and released in 2001. Jerry was tested as ND9257 and is an F3-derived line from the cross 'Roughrider'/ND7571//'Arapahoe' made in 1987 by D.J. Cox. Jerry was released for its combination of good quality and superior yield potential, lodging resistance, and winter hardiness. Average heading date of Jerry is 162 d from 1 January and occurs the same day as Roughrider, two days before 'Seward' and one day after 'Ransom'. Plant height of Jerry averages 94 cm compared to Roughrider, Seward, and Ransom with plant heights of 99, 104, and 89 cm respectively. In 38 North Dakota trials from 1995 through 2000 grain yield of Jerry averaged 2% higher than Ransom, 7% higher than Elkhorn, 5% higher than Seward and 14% higher than Roughrider. In 13 trials where lodging occurred percent lodging of Jerry was 18 compared to 39, 41, and 35 for Roughrider, Seward, and Ransom respectively. Jerry is moderately resistant to moderately susceptible to prevalent races of both stem rust and leaf rust. Test weight of Jerry averages 1% lower than Roughrider and similar to Seward. Grain and flour protein of Jerry is 0.5% lower than Roughrider but 1.0% higher than Seward.
