Interpretive Summary: 'Decade’ hard red winter wheat was developed and released jointly by the Montana and North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Stations in 2010. The name “Decade” denotes the extended time period (1997–2010) during which the Montana State University winter wheat breeding program and the Williston Research Extension Center (North Dakota) cooperated in the development of winter wheat cultivars that resulted in the release of this cultivar. Decade was released for its combination of good winter hardiness, short stature, and high yield potential and for its excellent performance in the eastern Montana and western North Dakota winter-wheat production environments.
