Bumper spring triticale (× Triticosecale Wittmack) is well adapted to the Canadian prairies with high grain yield in each of the soil zones It has shorter straw than the check cultivars and excellent lodging resistance. Bumper matures in a similar number of days as the check cultivars. It combines large heavy seed with test weight equal to the best cultivar AC Certa. Bumper is resistant to the prevalent races of leaf and stem rust and common bunt. Its reaction to Fusarium head blight is moderately resistant.
