Abstract

AAC Brandon hard red spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) has grain yield and time to maturity within the range of the check cultivars: Katepwa, Laura, Lillian, Carberry, and CDC Kernen. AAC Brandon has an awned spike, a low lodging score indicative of strong straw, and a short plant stature typical of a semidwarf. AAC Brandon expressed resistance to prevalent races of leaf, stem, and stripe rust, and moderate resistance to fusarium head blight and loose smut. Compared with the five Canada Western Red Spring check cultivars, AAC Brandon has improved flour yield and lower flower ash. AAC Brandon is eligible for grades of Canada Western Red Spring.
