Registration of 'tribute' wheat. Crop Science. 45:419-420. Interpretive Summary: New wheats must be released into growing regions every year. A new wheat named ‘Tribute’ was released for the soft red winter wheat market class in May 2002 by the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station. Tribute is broadly adapted to the region, having performed well over most of the soft red winter wheat production regions in the Eastern U.S. Besides producing high grain yield in the field and volume weight, Tribute provides the wheat industry with a strong gluten protein cracker-quality wheat that has resistance to most disease and insect pests prevalent in that region.
Technical Abstract: ‘Tribute’ (Reg. no. CV-958, PI 632689) is a soft red winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) developed and released May 2002 by the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station. Tribute is broadly adapted and has performed well over most of the soft red winter wheat production regions in the U.S.A. and Canada. Tribute was granted a three year interim registration (Reg. no. I-303) in Canada for Ontario, Quebec, and the Atlantic Provinces of Newfoundland, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia in October 2003. In addition to high grain yield and volume weight, Tribute provides the wheat industry with a strong gluten cracker-quality cultivar that has resistance to most disease and insect pests prevalent in the region.
