Interpretive Summary: Club wheat is a small but important component of the soft white wheat crop in the Pacific Northwest. Most of the club wheat grown is exported to Japan in a blend with soft white wheat named 'Western White'. Cameo was developed through conventional plant breeding to meet the need for a productive and agronomically competitive soft white club wheat for the Palouse region of eastern WA, and Northern Idaho. Cameo has excellent club wheat quality combined with superior agronomic productivity and an excellent combination of disease and insect resistance. Cameo will offer growers an alternative choice for wheat production in the Pacific Northwest.

Technical Abstract: Soft white club winter wheat (Triticium aestivum L. ssp. compactum) is an important component of soft white wheat production in the Pacific Northwest. While most of the current club wheat production located in the less-than 350 mm annual precipitation zone in Washington, there is significant interest in club wheat in the Palouse region of southern Whitman, and Garfield counties in Washington, and in Latah county Idaho. Growers are continuing to grow the very old club wheat cultivars Cara and Coda, and there is a need for a new winter club wheat targeted to this region. ‘Cameo’ club wheat, an awned white-kernel club wheat, was developed using the bulk-pedigree breeding method, from the cross: ' ARSC96059-2/IL01-11934//ARSC96059-2-0-16. As compared to other club wheat cultivars grown in the high rainfall region, Cameo has better agronomic performance than other clubs in trials on the Palouse, better stripe rust resistance than the club wheat ‘ARS Crescent’, tolerance to soil borne mosaic virus, acid soils, eyespot and Hessian Fly, consistent good test weight, mid-season maturity and moderate height, similar excellent club wheat quality, similar tolerance to low falling numbers as ‘ARS Crescent’ and ‘Castella’, and much better tolerance to low falling numbers than the club wheats ‘Bruehl’ and ‘Pritchett’. Cameo is not well adapted to the traditional club wheat growing area. Rather, Cameo is best adapted to the Palouse region of ID and WA. Inclusion criteria: Inclusion criteria are broad for the purpose of capturing all existing definitions of biofortification across the different areas of study involved in biofortification research. No participant type is excluded, and the context is not limited. The concept is strictly biofortification. Methods: A broad search strategy will be utilized for'AGRICOLA, AGRIS, PubAg, Web of Science, CINAHL, PubMed, Cochrane Library, JBI Evidence Synthesis journal, Google Scholar, and the Washington State University Libraries’ integrated catalog. The data extracted will include study and author characteristics. Tables and figures will demonstrate breadth and scale of the evidence, with findings displayed along a biofortification research pipeline.
