Interpretive Summary: A soft red winter wheat germplasm line was developed at the University of Maryland. It was released because it has moderate resistance to Fusarium head blight, a damaging disease of small grains. The resistance of this germplasm line, MD01W233-06-1, is different from that in a widely-used cultivar, Sumai 3.

Technical Abstract: MD01W233-06-1 (Reg. No., PI ) is a soft red winter wheat (SRWW) (Triticum aestivum L.) germplasm line developed at the University of Maryland and released by the Maryland Agricultural Experiment Station in 2009. MD01W233-06-1 was selected from a cross of ‘McCormick’/ ‘Choptank’ made in 2001. McCormick and Choptank are SRWW cultivars adapted to the US mid-Atlantic region. MD01W233-06-1 was selected as an F3:5 line selection in Queenstown, MD in June, 2006. MD01W233-06-1 has type II resistance to Fusarium head blight (caused by Fusarium graminearum) that is different from that of Sumai 3.
