Interpretive Summary: A new wheat cultivar, ‘Clara CL’, was developed at the Agricultural Research Center-Hays, Kansas State University, and released by the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station. Clara CL is a hard white winter wheat with tolerance to imazamox herbicide, high grain yield potential under non-irrigated conditions in western Kansas, pre-harvest sprouting tolerance, and good disease resistance. Clara CL is also Hessian fly-resistant. Seed of Clara CL is protected under the PVP Act.

Technical Abstract: ‘Clara CL’ hard white winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was developed at the Agricultural Research Center-Hays, Kansas State University and released by the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station in 2011. Clara CL carries one Clearfield gene and has the tolerance to imazamox herbicide. Clara CL was selected from a single cross, KS03HW154/KS03HW1, made in 2002 at Hays, KS. Both parental lines are unreleased hard white experimental lines from Kansas State University at Manhattan, Kansas. Clara CL is an F6 derived line with the experimental line number KS08HW35-1 in the yield trials. Clara CL was released because of its tolerance to imazamox herbicide, high grain yield potential under non-irrigated conditions in western Kansas, pre-harvest sprouting tolerance, and good disease and insect resistance.
