Interpretive Summary: Fusarium head blight (FHB), caused by fungus Fusarium graminearum, is a major constraint on the production of spring wheat. The objective of this research was to release a hard red spring wheat (HRSW) cultivar with enhanced levels of FHB resistance. "Select" HRSW was developed at South Dakota State University (SDSU) and released by the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station (SDAES) in February 2010. The cross was made during spring 2001 between Briggs and FN1500–118. Select was released for its high level of resistance to FHB when compared with most other HRSW cultivars developed by the SDSU-HRSW breeding program as well as for its high yield potential and grain volume weight in South Dakota and the northern Great Plains. Additionally, Select is moderately resistant to leaf rust (caused by Puccinia triticina) and has an early heading date compared with many HRSW cultivars currently in production.

Technical Abstract: Fusarium head blight (FHB), caused by Fusarium graminearum, Schwabe [telomorph Gibberella zeae (Schwein.) Petch]), is a major constraint on the production of spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The objective of this research was to release a hard red spring wheat (HRSW) cultivar with enhanced levels of FHB resistance. "Select" (Reg. No. CV-1056, PI 659554) HRSW was developed at South Dakota State University (SDSU) and released by the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station (SDAES) in February 2010. The cross "Briggs" (PI 632970)/FN1500–118 was made during spring 2001. Briggs (BW114/’Bergen’ (PI 538768)//SD3097) was released by SDAES in fall 2001. FN1500–118 is an unreleased experimental breeding line developed by the SDSU-HRSW breeding program. The population was advanced via an early-generation bulk-testing program where F4:7 seed was included in the 2005 preliminary yield trial, and the line was designated SD3948. SD3948 also was tested in the advanced yield trial from 2006 through 2009. Select was released for its high level of resistance to FHB when compared with most other HRSW cultivars developed by the SDSU-HRSW breeding program as well as for its high yield potential and grain volume weight in South Dakota and the northern Great Plains. Additionally, Select is moderately resistant to leaf rust (caused by Puccinia triticina Eriks.) and has an early heading date compared with many HRSW cultivars currently in production.
