Interpretive Summary: Stand establishment and emergence from deep planting are important traits for winter wheat varieties produced in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. The objective of this research was to develop an adapted winter wheat variety with a long coleoptile and the ability to emerge well from deep planting conditions in the dry land regions of Washington State. ‘Sequoia’ hard red winter wheat was developed and released by the Agricultural Research Center of Washington State University. Sequoia was tested under the experimental designations 2J040720, 3J040720, 2J061383, 3J061383, 4J061383, 5J061383, and WA 8180, which were assigned through progressive generations of advancement. Sequoia is a standard height variety adapted to the low rainfall (<300 mm of average annual precipitation), unirrigated wheat production regions of Washington with excellent emergence from deep planting. Sequoia has high-temperature, adult-plant resistance to stripe rust, average grain protein content, high grain volume weight, high yield potential, and excellent end-use quality properties.

Technical Abstract: Stand establishment and emergence from deep planting are important traits for winter wheat cultivars produced in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. The objective of this research was to develop an adapted winter wheat cultivar with a long coleoptile and the ability to emerge well from deep planting conditions in the dry land regions of Washington State. ‘Sequoia’ (reg. No. CV-XXXX, PI XXXX) hard red winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was developed and released by the Agricultural Research Center of Washington State University. Sequoia was tested under the experimental designations 2J040720, 3J040720, 2J061383, 3J061383, 4J061383, 5J061383, and WA 8180, which were assigned through progressive generations of advancement.
