Technical Abstract: The Hard Red Spring Wheat Uniform Regional Nursery (HRSWURN) was planted for the 87th year in 2017. The nursery contained 36 entries submitted by 8 different scientific or industry breeding programs, and 5 checks (Table 1). Trials were conducted as randomized complete blocks with three replicates except where noted. The HRSWURN was planted at 16 locations in 4 different states in the USA (MN, ND, SD, MT) and Canada (Brandon, Swift Current). Fifteen locations provided data included in this report (Figure 1, Table 2). Data summaries for each of the reporting locations are presented in individual tables. Overall means across locations for a set of core traits are summarized in Table 18, and yield rankings for individual locations are found in Table 19. Entries were also evaluated for various diseases at different locations; these can be found by looking at individual location data summaries. Leaf rust and stem rust resistance was evaluated in St. Paul, MN. These results are presented in Tables 20-21. Entries were evaluated in Fusarium head blight nurseries at Crookston and St. Paul, MN; these results are provided in Tables 22 and 23. Molecular marker genotyping for select agronomic, quality and disease resistance traits was also performed; this information is presented in Table 24. The highest average yielding location was Casselton, ND, with 96.9 Bu/Ac, while the lowest yielding location was Hettinger, ND, with 25.4 Bu/Ac.
