Technical Abstract: The Hard Red Spring Wheat Uniform Regional Nursery (HRSWURN) was planted for the 83rd year in 2013. The nursery contained 29 entries submitted by 7 different scientific or industry breeding programs, and 5 checks (Table 1). Trials were conducted as randomized complete blocks with three replicates except where noted. The HRSWURN was planted at 13 locations in 4 different states in the USA (MN, ND, SD, MT), and two Canadian provinces (Manitoba and Saskatchewan). All locations provided data included in this report (Figure 1, Table 2). Data summaries for each of these locations are presented in individual tables. For each location summary, entries are listed in descending order of yield. Overall means across locations for a set of core traits are summarized in Table 16, and yield rankings for individual locations are found in Table 17. Entries were also evaluated for various diseases at different locations; these can be found by looking at individual location data summaries. Leaf rust and stem resistance was evaluated in St. Paul, MN, and stripe rust evaluations were completed at two field locations in WA. These rust data are presented in Tables 18-20. Entries were evaluated in Fusarium head blight nurseries at Crookston and St. Paul, MN; these results are provided in Tables 21 and 22. Molecular marker genotyping for select traits was also performed; this information is presented in Table 23. The highest average yielding location was Langdon, ND, with 93 Bu/Ac, while the lowest yielding location was Selby, SD, with 41.2 Bu/Ac.
