Interpretive Summary: Wheat producers in Nebraska require wheat cultivars that perform well under a wide array of growing conditions. Therefore, the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station and the USDA-ARS cooperatively developed the hard red winter wheat 'NE10589', which is being marketed as Husker Genetics Brand 'Ruth.' This new wheat cultivar has excellent winter survival, adequate end use quality and resistance to regionally important diseases, as well as consistently high grain yield.

Technical Abstract: With climate variation common in the Great Plains and particularly in Nebraska, wheat growers prefer broadly adapted cultivars. ‘NE10589’ (Reg. No. , PI 675998) hard red winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was developed cooperatively by the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station and the USDA-ARS and released in January 2015 by the developing institutions. NE10589 was released primarily as a broadly adapted semi-dwarf cultivar for its superior performance under rainfed conditions throughout Nebraska and adjacent areas of the Great Plains. Its broad adaptation ensures that it will perform well under the typical environmental fluctuations that occur in Nebraska. NE10589 was selected from the cross ‘OK98697’/’Jagalene’//’Camelot’ where the pedigree of OK98697 is ‘TAM 200’/’HBB313E’//’2158’. The F2 to F3 generations were advanced using the bulk breeding method at the Eastern Nebraska Research and Extension Center near Mead, NE in 2006 to 2007. In 2007-2008, single F3:4 head rows were grown for selection. There was no further selection within the line thereafter. The F3:5 was evaluated as a single four-row plot at Lincoln, NE and a single row at Mead, NE in 2009. In 2010, it was assigned the experimental line number NE10589. NE10589 was evaluated in replicated trials thereafter. It has excellent winter survival, acceptable disease reactions to many of the common diseases in its target area, and acceptable end-use quality for bread making.
