Abstract

AAC Cabri durum wheat [Triticum turgidum L. subsp. durum (Desf.) Husn.] is adapted to the durum production area of the Canadian prairies. AAC Cabri has a solid stem that provides protection against the wheat stem sawfly (Cephus cinctus Norton). Averaged over four years, AAC Cabri yielded significantly more grain than Strongfield, AC Avonlea, and AC Navigator, but the protein concentration was significantly lower than the high protein concentration cultivars AC Avonlea and Strongfield. AAC Cabri is eligible for grades of Canada Western Amber Durum and has low grain cadmium concentration.
