Interpretive Summary: New varieties are constantly needed by wheat producers to increase yield, quality, or tolerance to diseases and environmental stresses. TAM 401 is a new hard red winter wheat variety that was developed and released by Texas AgriLife Research in 2008. TAM401 is an early maturing variety with excellent yield potential, acceptable end-use quality, good forage potential, and good disease resistance. TAM401 will be a good choice for producers in South Central Texas, the Blacklands, and the Rolling Plains.

Technical Abstract: 'TAM 401', a hard red winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L) cultivar (PI658500) with experimental designation TX03M1096, was developed and released by Texas AgriLife Research in 2008. TAM 401 is an F4 derived line from the cross 'Mason' (PI 594044)/'Jagger' (PI593688). TAM 401 is an early maturing apically awnletted wheat with excellent grain yield potential, good fall and early winter forage potential, good foliar disease resistance (leaf and stripe rusts in particular), and acceptable hard red winter wheat end-use quality. It has a good yield record across a wide range of environments, but is particularly well suited for grain only, dual purpose, and "graze-out" systems in the warmer and more humid wheat growing areas of Texas. TAM 401 will be a good choice for producers in South Central Texas, the Blacklands, and the Rolling Plains where hard winter wheat cultivars with leaf and stripe rust resistance are very limited.
