Fowler, D. B. 2012. Sunrise soft red winter wheat. Can. J. Plant Sci. 92: 195-198. Sunrise is a high-yielding soft red winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivar that is registered in the Canada Western General Purpose (CWGP) wheat class for production in western Canada. The CWGP wheat class was created in 2008 to encourage the development of cultivars to fill the high energy demands of the biofuel and livestock feed markets. The grain yield of Sunrise is similar to the high-yielding hard red and soft white winter wheat cultivars registered in the CWGP class. It has good stem rust, stripe rust, and tan spot resistance and moderate leaf rust resistance. High grain yield potential of low protein concentration grain combined with good agronomic and disease packages make Sunrise a good fit for the CWGP class.
