Interpretive Summary: Wheat growers and end-users demand highly for new Hard Red Spring Wheat (HRSW; Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars that have satisfactory agronomic performance, end-use quality potential, and disease resistance levels. Additional characteristics, such as desirable plant height, can also contribute to grower acceptance. The objective of this research was to release a short-statured HRSW cultivar with competitive grain yield, grain volume weight, end-use quality characteristics, and acceptable levels of resistance to a plant disease, Fusarium head blight (caused by Fusarium graminearum Schwabe). The HRSW cultivar, 'Prevail' (PI 672486), was developed at South Dakota State University (SDSU) and released by the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station in early 2014. Prevail tested as SD4178, was originated from the cross of two HRSW lines, SD3720/MN98389-A , that completed in fall 2002. Prevail was tested via an early-generation bulk-testing program in the 2008 Preliminary Yield Trial and in the Advanced Yield Trial from 2009 through 2013. Prevail was released as primarily for its combination of high yield potential and desirably short plant height that is significantly shorter than most other HRSW cultivars developed by the SDSU-HRSW breeding program.

Technical Abstract: Grower and end-user acceptance of new Hard Red Spring Wheat (HRSW; Triticum aestivum L.) cultivars is largely contingent upon satisfactory agronomic performance, end-use quality potential, and disease resistance levels. Additional characteristics, such as desirable plant height, can also contribute to grower acceptance. The objective of this research was to release a short-statured HRSW cultivar with competitive grain yield, grain volume weight, end-use quality characteristics, and acceptable levels of Fusarium head blight (FHB) (caused by Fusarium graminearum Schwabe) resistance. 'Prevail' (PI 672486) HRSW was developed at South Dakota State University (SDSU) and released by the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station in early 2014. The cross SD3720/MN98389-A was completed during fall 2002 and the resulting population was advanced via an early-generation bulk-testing program where F6:8 seed was included in the 2008 Preliminary Yield Trialand the line was designated as SD4178. SD4178 also was tested in the Advanced Yield Trial from 2009 through 2013. Prevail was released primarily for its combination of high yield potential and desirably short plant height that is significantly shorter than most other HRSW cultivars developed by the SDSU-HRSW breeding program.
