Interpretive Summary: Grain yield, protein content, and straw strength are the three primary traits that growers consider when selecting wheat cultivars in the Red River Valley region of Minnesota and North Dakota. A hard red spring wheat cultivar ‘Norden’ (PI 665250) was released by the University of Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station in 2012 because it represented a unique combination of these traits in addition to good resistance to plant diseases called leaf rust and Fusarium head blight.

Technical Abstract: Grain yield, protein content, and straw strength are the three primary traits that growers consider when selecting wheat cultivars in the Red River Valley region of Minnesota and North Dakota. ‘Norden’ (PI 665250) was released by the University of Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station in 2012 because it represented a unique combination of these traits in addition to good resistance to leaf rust (Puccinia triticina Eriks.) and Fusarium head blight (FHB) (caused primarily by Fusarium graminearum Schwabe). Norden is a mid-maturity, semi-dwarf cultivar that was selected in part because it contains the Lr34 gene for adult plant leaf rust resistance and Fhb1 QTL for FHB resistance.
