Bhishaj is a soft white spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) that meets the end-use quality specifications of the Canada Western Soft White Spring class. Bhishaj is well-adapted to the wheat growing regions of southern Alberta and southern Saskatchewan. Based on data from the Western Soft White Spring Wheat Cooperative Registration Test from 1999 to 2001 and 2006 to 2009, Bhishaj exhibited high grain yield, mid-season maturity, semi-dwarf stature with moderate straw strength, and good resistance to shattering. Bhishaj expressed resistance to the prevalent races of leaf rust, stripe rust and powdery mildew, intermediate response to loose smut, susceptibility to stem rust, common bunt, and Fusarium head blight. Based on end-use quality analysis performed at the Grain Research Laboratory of the Canadian Grain Commission, Bhishaj had similar milling and baking performance as the check cultivars AC Reed and AC Phil.
