Interpretive Summary: Grain yield is generally the most important criteria growers use to select which variety to grow. ‘Shelly’ (Reg. No. CV-____, PI 681618) hard red spring wheat was released by the University of Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station in 2016 because it combines very high grain yield with acceptable lodging resistance, grain protein concentration and end-use quality characteristics, and good resistance to the diseases Fusarium head blight, leaf rust, stripe rust, and stem rust. Shelly is a mid-late maturity, semi-dwarf cultivar that is well-adapted to the north central U.S. and is among the higher-yielding cultivars currently available.

Technical Abstract: Grain yield is generally the most important criteria growers use to select which variety to grow. ‘Shelly’ (Reg. No. CV-____, PI 681618) hard red spring wheat was released by the University of Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station in 2016 because it combines very high grain yield with acceptable lodging resistance, grain protein concentration and end-use quality characteristics, and good resistance to the diseases Fusarium head blight (caused primarily by Fusarium graminearum Schwabe), leaf rust (Puccinia triticina Eriks.), stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis Westend. f. sp. tritici Eriks.), and stem rust (Puccinia graminis Pers.: Pers. f. sp. tritici Eriks. & E. Henn.). Shelly is a mid-late maturity, semi-dwarf cultivar that is well-adapted to the north central U.S. and is among the higher-yielding cultivars currently available.
