Available: http://wheat.pw.usda.gov/ggpages/germplasm.shtml. Technical Abstract: The Hard Red Spring Wheat Uniform Regional Nursery (HRSWURN) was planted for the 75th year in 2003. The nursery contained 32 entries submitted by 9 different scientific or industry organizations, and 5 checks. Trials were conducted as randomized complete blocks with three replicates. The HRSWURN was planted at 19 locations in 7 different States in the U.S. (MN, ND, SD, MT, NE, WY, and WA), and at locations in two separate Canadian Provinces (Manitoba and Saskatchewan). All locations provided data for inclusion in this report. Entries were also evaluated for Fusarium head blight resistance in scab nurseries at St. Paul and Crookston, MN, and adult plant leaf and stem rust resistance was evaluated in one nursery in St. Paul, MN. The highest average yielding location was Powell WY, with 114.6 Bu/Ac, while the lowest yielding location was Sidney, NE with 22 Bu/Ac. The average yield for the 19 combined locations was 60.1 Bu/Ac.
