Interpretive Summary: Avery is a new hard red winter wheat cultivar that was developed and released in August 2015 by Colorado State University. In addition to researchers at Colorado State University, USDA-ARS researchers at Manhattan, KS, St. Paul, MN, and Pullman, WA contributed to its development. Avery was derived from the cross of cultivars TAM 112 by Byrd. Avery has improved grain yield and end-use quality compared to Byrd, a widely grown hard red winter wheat in Colorado.

Technical Abstract: Avery (Reg. No. CV-XXXX, PI 676977) hard red winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was developed by the Colorado Agricultural Experiment Station and released in August 2015 through a marketing agreement with the Colorado Wheat Research Foundation. In addition to researchers at Colorado State University, USDA-ARS researchers at Manhattan, KS, St. Paul, MN, and Pullman, WA contributed to its development. Avery was developed with the objective of making available a hard red winter wheat cultivar with improved grain yield and end-use quality compared to Byrd (PI 658597) hard red winter wheat. Avery is a doubled haploid (DH) cultivar developed using the wheat x maize (Zea mays L.) wide hybridization method from the cross TAM 112 (PI 643143)/Byrd made in 2009 at Fort Collins, CO. Following DH generation in 2010, Avery was selected at Fort Collins in July 2011, assigned experimental line number CO11D174, and evaluated in yield trials in Colorado and other states in the U.S. hard winter wheat region from 2012 to 2015. The name Avery was chosen in honor of early Colorado business and agricultural pioneer Franklin C. Avery (1849-1923).
