Interpretive Summary: ‘FourOsix’ (MT1465) is a new high-yielding, winter-hardy hard red winter (HRW) wheat cultivar with medium maturity, medium to high grain protein, and excellent milling and baking quality. It was developed from a composite of five single crosses of predominant cultivar ‘Yellowstone’ and released by the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station for its high grain yield in north central Montana, with earlier heading date, reduced plant height, improved grain volume weight, and improved stripe rust resistance relative to Yellowstone.

Technical Abstract: ‘FourOsix’ (Reg. no. CV-1153, PI 689753) hard red winter (HRW) wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was developed and released by the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station (MAES) in 2018. FourOsix was derived from a composite of five single crosses of predominant cultivar ‘Yellowstone’ to advanced Montana breeding lines. FourOsix was developed using a modified bulk breeding method and selected as an F5:6 headrow. FourOsix was tested under the experimental number MT1465 in Montana yield trials from 2014 to 2018. FourOsix is a high-yielding, winter-hardy HRW wheat cultivar with medium maturity, medium to high grain protein, and excellent milling and baking quality. FourOsix was released for its excellent grain yield performance in winter wheat production environments of north central Montana, with earlier heading date, reduced plant height, improved grain volume weight, and improved stripe rust (caused by caused by Puccinia striiformis Westend. f. sp. tritici Eriks.) resistance relative to Yellowstone.
