[00:00:07.720]Okay, Todd Whitney and I, Nathan Mueller are back,
[00:00:11.580]cropping system extension educators
[00:00:13.300]for University of Nebraska
[00:00:15.140]picking off where we left off
[00:00:16.480]for looking at the south central
[00:00:19.370]winter wheat variety trials.
[00:00:20.970]And so, we're gonna go ahead and give you backgrounds
[00:00:23.350]on the Jefferson and Harlan County plots
[00:00:26.820]as well as things to consider for variety selection
[00:00:29.460]and a little bit about the variety testing program.
[00:00:31.330]So we're gonna go variety by variety
[00:00:32.560]in the commercial varieties here.
[00:00:35.060]So first up we'll go through,
[00:00:39.653]we'll go ahead and go through the commercial varieties.
[00:00:42.870]The first one's, the brands
[00:00:45.300]or companies recommended or planted in the trials.
[00:00:47.783]They were Husker Genetics, that's a UNL breeding program.
[00:00:50.460]NuPride, which is another avenue for UNL Genetics.
[00:00:55.580]Kansas Wheat Alliance, which is K-State's breeding program.
[00:00:58.740]AgriMaxx, which is out of Illinois.
[00:01:01.060]AgriPro with Syngenta.
[00:01:02.950]Dyna-Gro, Croplan, and WestBred,
[00:01:05.040]which is owned by Bayer.
[00:01:06.080]So these are the companies that participated
[00:01:08.010]in the South Central trails in 2020.
[00:01:12.120]We have a slide for each variety.
[00:01:14.860]The first thing at the top you'll see
[00:01:16.680]is the variety name,
[00:01:17.990]the year that variety was released
[00:01:19.860]and then the company that, that variety is sold by.
[00:01:24.520]We'll talk about strengths of each variety
[00:01:27.070]and then maybe some management notes
[00:01:28.760]for each one or things to look out for
[00:01:30.550]in terms of management and then we'll have
[00:01:31.920]a picture to go with each one
[00:01:33.970]so you can kind of see what each variety
[00:01:35.450]looked like this year in the Jefferson County plots.
[00:01:39.040]For consistency but we'll also highlight
[00:01:40.800]pictures from the Harlan County variety trials as well.
[00:01:45.390]So, first up are the commercial varieties
[00:01:47.080]from Husker Genetics and NuPride,
[00:01:48.600]which is the UNL breeding program,
[00:01:50.110]we had four entries.
[00:01:52.150]The first one is Overland.
[00:01:53.590]One that's been around for quite a while,
[00:01:55.570]released in 2006, obviously it was planted
[00:01:59.130]on a lot of acres over Eastern Nebraska,
[00:02:01.360]South Central Nebraska over the years
[00:02:02.970]because it's moderately resistant to head scab
[00:02:04.887]and it still is.
[00:02:06.765]And good resistance to leaf rust is held up.
[00:02:09.510]It also has good resistance to bacterial leaf streak,
[00:02:11.920]which we often talk about fungal diseases and viruses
[00:02:14.600]but bacterial leaf streak was an issue,
[00:02:17.670]I think, two years ago in West Central
[00:02:19.460]and East Central Nebraska.
[00:02:23.130]This variety was originally released,
[00:02:25.290]both moving north into South Dakota.
[00:02:29.350]So, good winter hardiness.
[00:02:32.020]If you look at the yield in the variety trials
[00:02:33.960]in the multi year analysis,
[00:02:35.190]the yield's lagging behind
[00:02:36.330]because it is an older variety.
[00:02:38.010]So Siege, which is a new UNL variety
[00:02:40.230]released in 2020 and Ruth released in 2015
[00:02:43.290]are replacements for Overland in much of Nebraska.
[00:02:47.440]Overland is susceptible to stripe rust,
[00:02:49.420]that's one of it's Achilles heels
[00:02:51.960]and then with changes in stripe rust resistance,
[00:02:54.240]that happens, there's stripe rust races
[00:02:56.220]and then it was susceptible to soil borne mosaic.
[00:02:59.000]It's a late maturing variety.
[00:03:01.230]This year, at some of the plots,
[00:03:02.200]we did have a bad lot of seed,
[00:03:04.910]initially on Overland, I think,
[00:03:06.340]both at Harlan County and Lancaster County,
[00:03:10.430]but in Jefferson County they got a new seed lot
[00:03:12.770]and plots looked pretty good on that
[00:03:14.420]late planted one down there for Overland.
[00:03:18.150]Go ahead on anything Overland, Todd.
[00:03:19.990]Yeah, I was gonna mention,
[00:03:21.570]we still have to crop cooperators
[00:03:23.410]over in Gosper County that really like Overland.
[00:03:26.257]has been a real rugged one.
[00:03:27.850]I'm gonna say Ruth doesn't seem quite as rugged
[00:03:31.460]as (murmurs) the variety see Overland
[00:03:33.790]so there may be some slight differences
[00:03:36.570]if you see it as replacement.
[00:03:38.870]But again, it's not the pretty wheat.
[00:03:41.380]I mean it looks kind of rugged when you look at it
[00:03:43.740]that there have been people like that
[00:03:46.110]on some rugged soils too.
[00:03:48.630]Yep, still available as certified seed,
[00:03:51.370]still an option.
[00:03:53.010]And we'll talk a little bit more about Siege here,
[00:03:56.120]as a replacement too.
[00:04:00.820]Next one Freeman, from Husker Good Genetics.
[00:04:04.350]Moves north well, good winter hardiness,
[00:04:06.620]high nitrogen efficiency is something they found
[00:04:08.950]with this variety, really utilizes nitrogen
[00:04:11.360]while converting that to yield
[00:04:12.670]and protein has performed pretty well for the West,
[00:04:16.370]was originally released as a rain fed variety
[00:04:20.990]not for under irrigation due to its average standability.
[00:04:24.460]Genetically we have seen if you look
[00:04:25.970]at the variety trial results across South Central
[00:04:28.020]and Eastern Nebraska lower test weight isn't uncommon.
[00:04:31.040]It is susceptible to stripe rust,
[00:04:33.470]both Siege and Ruth specifically Siege is a replacement
[00:04:37.360]for Freeman in South Central and Eastern Nebraska
[00:04:41.530]moving forward due to improve yield
[00:04:43.577]and some improved traits for that region.
[00:04:46.900]Any comments on Freeman Todd?
[00:04:49.860]It gives a shorter look to some
[00:04:53.390]of the variety in our region here.
[00:04:56.240]It hasn't been a great performer so far in our region here,
[00:05:01.600]cause it was more in the medium range
[00:05:03.700]last year in the trials.
[00:05:07.250]Appearance wise, its been okay,
[00:05:09.950]but again not sure if it's gonna be as high tech
[00:05:13.260]in our region in the arm blog.
[00:05:18.950]Okay, the next one up, Ruth,
[00:05:21.510]which was released in 2015 by Husker Genetics.
[00:05:24.100]It is the second most planted variety across
[00:05:26.800]the State of Nebraska due to it's broad adaptability
[00:05:29.740]and excellent winter hardiness.
[00:05:31.510]Some of the things that really do pose some problems
[00:05:33.690]for us here especially in Jefferson County area,
[00:05:36.710]on the eastern side of South Central Nebraska,
[00:05:39.270]it is this moderately susceptible to leaf rust,
[00:05:42.040]which we had a lot of leaf rust pressure last year,
[00:05:44.610]and it's also moderately susceptible
[00:05:46.060]to Fusarium head blight.
[00:05:47.590]So it is definitely a variety that you wanna scout
[00:05:50.340]and practice irrigated pest management
[00:05:52.540]and spray a fungicide if depending on rainfall
[00:05:56.060]and risk for scab and also be watching
[00:05:58.480]for the movement of leaf rust.
[00:06:02.202]And I'll mention to you that
[00:06:03.420]it was probably not in the top yielders
[00:06:06.900]of our variety plot last year.
[00:06:09.220]And so, we're hopeful that'll be a good one,
[00:06:12.730]but we hope that it proves itself better this year,
[00:06:16.380]that it may be this mark after more
[00:06:18.880]eastern suburbs than our region.
[00:06:23.110]Another highlight I know is,
[00:06:24.530]it moves into the panhandle when we looked at that analysis,
[00:06:27.740]compared to what for example,
[00:06:29.590]some obviously advantages there.
[00:06:31.130]So, again, a pretty broad adaptability for Nebraska,
[00:06:35.970]pretty consistent variety may not be at the top
[00:06:38.420]but a very consistent right here across Nebraska.
[00:06:42.250]Siege which is a new release here in 2020.
[00:06:45.690]It's gonna be marketed through NuPride,
[00:06:47.640]which is a group of growers so they have their own website
[00:06:50.300]and get certified seed at Siege this year.
[00:06:53.860]Sage I know yielded about 110 bushels on foundation
[00:06:57.220]seed field, at our Eastern Nebraska Research
[00:06:59.730]and Extension Center.
[00:07:01.010]So it definitely has high yield potential
[00:07:02.900]if you look at past variety trial results
[00:07:05.540]we've seen it go 120.
[00:07:07.440]It's got improved straw strength over Ruth and Freeman.
[00:07:12.170]I really like it cause it's got a good seed size,
[00:07:15.670]consistent test weight and better protein.
[00:07:17.690]So all things that necessarily we had problems
[00:07:20.580]with Freeman with,
[00:07:23.080]good resistance to bacterial leaf streak similar to Overland
[00:07:26.590]and improved stripe rust resistance
[00:07:28.910]over those other varieties.
[00:07:30.867]The one thing that they weren't able to achieve
[00:07:33.260]it is still moderately susceptible
[00:07:35.040]to a Fusarium head blight.
[00:07:37.160]So an improvement there so definitely something
[00:07:39.640]to be on the lookout in terms of
[00:07:41.210]not putting necessarily on after corn
[00:07:43.880]or inlet years and make sure that you're scouting.
[00:07:46.840]It is considered replacement for Overland and Freeman
[00:07:49.470]in South Central Nebraska.
[00:07:51.210]And and when it comes to Overland,
[00:07:53.710]other than this the scab difference
[00:07:56.100]some improvements in yield consistently
[00:07:58.550]across the years and locations.
[00:08:00.860]Yeah, and I'm praying that this would be the one
[00:08:02.780]I would say would be more far reaching here
[00:08:06.680]of our great, ones coming out the talent
[00:08:10.030]and this one would probably be the two
[00:08:11.300]that I would be the most excited about.
[00:08:16.270]Hey, that wraps up our commercial varieties
[00:08:19.410]from the UNL Breeding Program marketed
[00:08:21.800]through Husker Genetics and NuPride.
[00:08:23.970]We're gonna move to commercial varieties
[00:08:25.620]from Limagrain Cereal Seeds,
[00:08:27.190]they had three entries this year.
[00:08:30.430]Here's a picture of the Harlan County plots again,
[00:08:32.700]LCS Chrome, Chrome is broadly adapted.
[00:08:37.540]You hear a lot about Chrome down in Oklahoma Kansas
[00:08:40.650]well so, broad adaptability,
[00:08:42.670]we'll talk about some of the reasons why.
[00:08:45.280]It's got very good drought tolerance,
[00:08:46.950]and so that's something of value,
[00:08:48.730]excellent disease resistant package,
[00:08:50.430]very good resistance to the leaf spotting disease
[00:08:54.030]leaf and stripe rust.
[00:08:55.640]They have seen a little bit of stripe rust
[00:08:58.250]showing up in Chrome more so this year in Kansas,
[00:09:02.000]so there might be a little bit of shift there
[00:09:03.760]in that rating moving forward,
[00:09:05.100]but it's been very good on leaf health,
[00:09:07.250]really good straw strength, excellent grain protein,
[00:09:09.880]if you look at the protein results
[00:09:11.440]from variety trials in Nebraska
[00:09:12.920]and you're gonna see that higher grain protein.
[00:09:15.580]One thing about it is medium late to maturity,
[00:09:18.780]so when we talk about diversifying our wheat,
[00:09:22.370]it's gonna flower and mature a little bit later
[00:09:25.990]than some of our earlier maturing varieties.
[00:09:27.580]So it's always nice not to have your eggs in one basket
[00:09:29.900]and diversify maturities if you can.
[00:09:31.530]If you're only gonna plant one variety,
[00:09:33.790]I still would like to go to that medium or medium early.
[00:09:36.750]It is moderately susceptible to Barley yellow dwarf,
[00:09:39.950]the company has it rated a little bit better
[00:09:42.370]than maybe what we've seen for Fusarium head blight
[00:09:45.500]down in Kansas from their ratings,
[00:09:47.330]that K State has it rated as more acceptable
[00:09:49.669]to head scab, but again,
[00:09:52.020]broadly adapted variety with overall good leaf health.
We'll show a variety,
[00:09:59.190]when you look at it I really liked
[00:10:00.670]what (murmurs) and so,
[00:10:06.500]more important than what it looks like that
[00:10:08.360]I mean it does have a real nice appearance too
[00:10:11.100]when we look at it.
[00:10:12.350]And we did have a little bit of that
[00:10:13.540]where we would work on our blog (murmurs).
[00:10:19.200]Next one from Limagrain Link released in 2017,
[00:10:24.300]this actually was developed in partnership
[00:10:26.920]with the University of Nebraska breeding program
[00:10:29.250]so a little bit of connections with with UNL
[00:10:31.680]on this variety.
[00:10:32.980]Very good winter hardiness excellent straw strength,
[00:10:35.540]good test weight.
[00:10:37.220]Something that Limagrain it seems to been focusing on
[00:10:40.010]is desirable induce quality so milling
[00:10:42.260]and baking prot quality, pretty good on this variety.
[00:10:45.480]It is a late maturing variety,
[00:10:49.390]and I know the company was looking at
[00:10:51.560]past virtual field days this spring here in 2020.
[00:10:55.850]And they did allude that LCS Diesel
[00:10:57.930]might be released in 2019 might be positioned
[00:11:00.570]as a replacement for Link in certain geographies,
[00:11:04.170]in the Great Plains.
[00:11:05.600]So something definitely to talk to your
[00:11:08.240]local Limagrain rep about NC dealer.
[00:11:16.620]Now it was a little bit above the average last year,
[00:11:20.190]I mean it was over 100 bushel last year long
[00:11:22.520]so definitely has yield potential here too.
[00:11:29.080]Next one, the company's pretty excited about LCS Valiant
[00:11:34.260]released in 2019, the new variety actually developed
[00:11:38.270]by the UNL breeding program and then licensed to Limagrain.
[00:11:41.760]So it was developed fully by UNL,
[00:11:44.600]but in terms of its placement,
[00:11:46.960]it was beyond Nebraska,
[00:11:48.280]Nebraska doesn't have good marketing,
[00:11:51.110]necessarily beyond State lines for Husker Genetics
[00:11:53.590]and so the UNL partnered with Limagrain to license
[00:11:57.250]this variety, release this variety,
[00:11:58.820]so to get better placement across the geography
[00:12:01.730]they thought it should be placed.
[00:12:03.230]It is an early maturing variety
[00:12:04.780]which is not typical from the UNL breeding program,
[00:12:07.950]which is why probably a partnership
[00:12:09.580]with me Limagrain made sense.
[00:12:11.050]It's got good milling baking quality
[00:12:13.150]which is important in the long run.
[00:12:15.500]good yield performance.
[00:12:16.520]It is, intermediate resistance
[00:12:18.740]to Fusarium head blight but pretty good last year
[00:12:20.920]where we had quite a bit of scab.
[00:12:23.220]It's always nice to have something
[00:12:24.720]that's intermediate versus moderately susceptible.
[00:12:27.810]One thing to note it is susceptible to stripe rust,
[00:12:30.230]Limagrain has it as fairly moderately resistant
[00:12:33.650]to stripe rust but we've seen both in the UNL release
[00:12:37.250]in the UNL variety trials that it actually
[00:12:39.020]is susceptible to stripe rust
[00:12:40.390]so something you definitely wanna be scouting for
[00:12:42.610]in spring for on stripe rust pressured years.
[00:12:46.310]Any any additions to Valiant Todd.
[00:12:49.840]I think it's a definite interest one
[00:12:52.330]we did not have it in our variety plot
[00:12:55.640]last year mixed so we don't have a lot of data
[00:12:58.220]on this one yet,
[00:12:59.150]but it may be worth looking at.
[00:13:01.980]I think it's definitely worth looking at this year.
[00:13:06.600]Yep, it was tested as an experimental
[00:13:09.745]in the past year, so we do have a couple years
[00:13:11.960]worth of data.
[00:13:12.793]It's done very well at least in the Eastern Nebraska
[00:13:15.150]variety trials that would have been Jefferson County
[00:13:17.770]last year, Lancaster, Saunders and Washington County.
[00:13:22.210]Has yielded very well both in plots
[00:13:24.450]where it's sprayed with the fungicide and whatnot.
[00:13:26.450]So I think that's something definitely to look at.
[00:13:28.800]If I know some growers like planting varieties
[00:13:31.960]from the Nebraska breeding program,
[00:13:33.580]so this would obviously a choice
[00:13:35.350]just marketed through Limagrain.
[00:13:38.550]That wraps up the Limagrain varieties
[00:13:40.233]lets go ahead and hop into the Kansas Wheat Alliance
[00:13:42.970]which markets the K State breeding program variety.
[00:13:46.390]So we have two entries this year in South Central Nebraska.
[00:13:49.800]The first one is Zenda,
[00:13:51.430]Zenda is not a new variety, was released in 2016.
[00:13:55.070]replacement for Everest with improved and use quality
[00:13:58.440]that was the main hiccup with Everest
[00:14:00.600]one of the most widely planted wheats in Kansas,
[00:14:04.280]but when it came to end use milling, baking quality
[00:14:07.910]wasn't quite where those groups wanted it
[00:14:10.410]so this is improved quality.
[00:14:12.290]Still moderately resistant to head scab,
[00:14:14.620]still moderately early for maturity
[00:14:16.570]not quite as early as Everest
[00:14:18.220]or maybe close to the same level of scab resistance
[00:14:21.650]so those things they kept good resistance
[00:14:24.160]to leaf and stripe rust and improvement
[00:14:25.820]on stripe rust over Everest
[00:14:27.940]that was one of the things the race
[00:14:29.910]changed in stripe rust Everest heavily affected.
[00:14:33.440]This year they did see a little bit more stripe rust
[00:14:36.080]on Zenda down in Kansas
[00:14:38.040]compared to years past just like LCS Chrome.
[00:14:40.890]Excellent straw strength for self sustainability,
[00:14:43.600]whether irrigated or rain fed a good choice,
[00:14:45.570]excellent test weight,
[00:14:48.020]which is something when it comes to marketing,
[00:14:49.570]you don't get a protein premium,
[00:14:51.500]and you don't get that realized price
[00:14:53.190]if you don't have a good test weight at the elevator either.
[00:14:55.320]So one thing to note average drought tolerance,
[00:14:58.250]so moving from Jefferson County to Harlan County,
[00:15:02.150]I think it probably has a better fit
[00:15:04.370]for the East half so maybe from Nichols County East
[00:15:08.670]because of that average drought (murmurs) rated
[00:15:10.750]as a seven, Kansas wheat Alliance.
[00:15:13.340]So definitely has done well in North Central Kansas
[00:15:16.300]at Bellville location.
[00:15:18.690]Definitely a variety that's done really well
[00:15:21.530]in Eastern Nebraska.
[00:15:22.810]So definitely has that going for it in terms of disease
[00:15:25.380]and yield potential.
[00:15:26.213]Todd, how about your way closer to (murmurs)
[00:15:29.040]Yeah, I'm in agreement.
[00:15:30.260]I it seemed like in Berlin County plots,
[00:15:33.350]it didn't look like it would work quite as much.
[00:15:37.036]So it doesn't look quite as thick
[00:15:38.210]as what he's looking at some of the other ones
[00:15:41.250]that we'll talk about.
[00:15:43.226]But it does have a nice appearing head to it.
[00:15:45.770]I have not seen the leaf health has been better
[00:15:49.940]than what I thought we would see because
[00:15:52.395]have been concerned about rust,
[00:15:54.100]but it wasn't one that was having strike ratio enough on it.
[00:15:56.880]So hopefully it'll be here.
[00:15:59.130]We'll see what happens.
[00:16:04.350]Next one we'll talk about is a new variety
[00:16:06.540]from Kansas Wheat Alliance, KS Western Star.
[00:16:10.160]Here's a picture of it in the Harlan County plots
[00:16:12.460]you can see a little bit of a look like
[00:16:13.640]barley yellow dwarf there.
[00:16:15.350]In this variety I saw the same thing
[00:16:16.930]at the Jefferson County plots looks like
[00:16:19.040]a little bit more barley yellow dwarf than I saw in Zenda.
[00:16:22.860]So some differences there.
[00:16:25.170]It's got good resistance to stripe and leaf rust.
[00:16:28.560]Very good straw strength,
[00:16:29.610]improved drought tolerance for moving less
[00:16:33.320]that's the name then we would have with Zenda
[00:16:35.550]one thing I was excited about though still
[00:16:37.950]intermediate for resistance to scab,
[00:16:39.870]so not quite as good as Zenda but for Todd's area
[00:16:43.730]where there might be some weed after corn follow
[00:16:46.000]and improve drought tolerance,
[00:16:47.110]this might be something to definitely consider.
[00:16:49.450]It is medium to later maturing then Zenda is,
[00:16:53.870]company Kansas Wheat Alliance has it placed in Nebraska,
[00:16:57.730]so on the two varieties they have recommended
[00:16:59.990]for Nebraska out of their lineup and placement
[00:17:02.690]in South Central and West Central Southwest Nebraska.
[00:17:06.620]So observations on this new variety this year Todd.
[00:17:10.468]This was one we were hopeful was gonna be really good,
[00:17:12.900]the plant breeder down in Kansas,
[00:17:16.000]down in Hays, Kansas, which is two hours south
[00:17:19.240]or the flop where we're at.
[00:17:21.820]When he developed this, we were hopeful,
[00:17:24.290]hey, this is gonna be a good one kind of
[00:17:25.890]for our region here.
[00:17:27.110]But it hasn't looked as thick and as tall
[00:17:30.300]as I thought we might see early on, but, again,
[00:17:34.450]we're hopeful, we'll have to see
[00:17:36.140]this is our first year seeing it so,
[00:17:38.430]we'll see what happens that,
[00:17:42.269]it has had a little bit of (murmurs)
[00:17:44.660]with the paralegal work some of that
[00:17:46.928]but again, we're really hopeful because
[00:17:49.940]it was meant to be bred for our region here.
[00:17:55.010]That wraps up the Kansas State or K State
[00:17:57.970]breeding program or Kansas Wheat Alliance varieties.
[00:18:01.030]Next one we have one entry from Dyna-Gro.
[00:18:04.510]This variety was released in 2016,
[00:18:06.940]Dyna-Gro has two winter wheat varieties
[00:18:09.580]hard red winter wheat varieties in their lineup
[00:18:11.910]and this is one that's been tested several years,
[00:18:14.408]in Nebraska across the State.
[00:18:16.730]Market is for having brought adaptability,
[00:18:18.850]good winter hardiness, high yield potential,
[00:18:21.140]we've seen that high yield potential
[00:18:22.440]at the Jefferson County plot where
[00:18:24.350]we've had three fungicide applications
[00:18:27.030]under that management that has been
[00:18:30.370]very high yield potential but
[00:18:31.770]if we look at another location
[00:18:33.620]just north of Jefferson County at Lancaster County,
[00:18:36.260]where there is not fungicide sprayed,
[00:18:38.740]we're not seeing the same high yield potential.
[00:18:40.530]So definitely probably an advantage to fungicide
[00:18:42.760]on this variety.
[00:18:44.000]One thing we have noticed in eastern Nebraska
[00:18:46.480]where we have a lot of moisture for growers
[00:18:49.370]that have pushed this, it has averaged standability,
[00:18:52.150]if you're pushing yields, nitrogen and water
[00:18:55.200]standability can become an issue in this variety.
[00:18:58.500]So something to be aware of.
[00:19:00.400]The company has it primarily placed
[00:19:02.430]in South Central South West and Southern
[00:19:05.120]Panhandle for placement.
[00:19:07.320]But under high fungicide management has yielded
[00:19:11.491]very well in eastern Nebraska as well.
[00:19:14.170]Any comments on on Long Branch Todd?
[00:19:17.190]Fortunately didn't yield quite as well for us
[00:19:19.370]out here last year on your plot location.
[00:19:24.020]Again, we're hopeful that it will be the
[00:19:26.230]one we're looking at,
[00:19:27.340]that way but that it wasn't
[00:19:30.170]an outstanding yield for last year
[00:19:32.090]but it was it was in acceptable range,
[00:19:36.140]where we ran with it.
[00:19:39.970]Next one, Croplan has five entries this year
[00:19:43.430]this is the first time I'm seeing Croplan varieties
[00:19:47.880]in the Clay, Jefferson
[00:19:51.960]and the eastern Nebraska variety trials
[00:19:53.970]there were Croplan varieties
[00:19:55.230]in West Central where Harlan County was lumped in last year.
[00:19:58.160]So we do have a little bit of data
[00:20:00.220]for the Harlan County site for how these varieties
[00:20:02.410]performed last year but not at Jefferson or Clay.
[00:20:06.500]So, CP7869 released in 2017
[00:20:11.460]company has it at market is high yield potential
[00:20:14.050]excellent standability, good resistance
[00:20:16.030]to rust, stem, leaf and stripe
[00:20:17.620]and that's what they've seen down in Oklahoma
[00:20:20.720]in Kansas for this variety.
[00:20:23.800]It was tested in 2019 in Harlan County,
[00:20:26.250]is medium to late for maturity.
[00:20:28.130]The company does have a place to cross Nebraska
[00:20:30.230]east to west, in terms of recommended area.
[00:20:33.120]So Todd comments on 7869.
[00:20:36.765]It made the top 10 of our variety yielders last year
[00:20:40.360]in our Harlan County plot
[00:20:42.720]and so it's one we are kind of excited about
[00:20:45.980]to see what's gonna happen.
[00:20:48.000]It looks good, has kind of a little bit
[00:20:50.580]of a rugged look to it and so
[00:20:53.550]and like the heads and so it looks good.
[00:20:59.300]Next one is a little year newer CP7909,
[00:21:04.720]released in 2018, higher green protein
[00:21:07.420]in this particular variety,
[00:21:08.890]good winter hardiness, broad adaptation
[00:21:11.000]and is resistant to soil borne.
[00:21:12.810]I'm not sure on some of the Croplan varieties,
[00:21:15.180]what their soil borne mosaic virus resistance is,
[00:21:18.730]but this is one that they did say is resistant.
[00:21:21.000]This was also tested in 2019 in Harlan County,
[00:21:23.620]if you look at the company website,
[00:21:25.150]they have it placed more for West Central
[00:21:27.640]in the Panhandle in Nebraska.
[00:21:30.050]Not necessarily targeted for South Central
[00:21:32.320]and Eastern Nebraska,
[00:21:33.280]but it is entered in the south central
[00:21:34.407]and eastern Nebraska variety testing locations.
[00:21:36.690]So we'll definitely get a look at it in terms of yield
[00:21:38.720]and disease resistance this year.
It did well in the plot.
[00:21:43.767]It wasn't quite toward the top 10,
[00:21:46.650]but it was in that upper group,
[00:21:48.020]It was definitely above the average
[00:21:49.840]and it was above 100 bushel yield.
[00:21:52.450]And so we are excited about this one too,
[00:21:55.840]there's potential for it to do real well,
[00:21:58.607]but we'll see what happens this year.
[00:22:02.100]Okay, we have a couple new ones,
[00:22:04.120]so pretty limited data on these yet,
[00:22:06.370]if you go to the company website,
[00:22:07.828]there's not too much about these newer varieties.
[00:22:11.430]This one was tested as an experimental Todd last year
[00:22:15.100]as CPX7910 in Harlan County as an experimental,
[00:22:19.810]it is a new variety.
[00:22:21.420]So we'll see how it performs
[00:22:22.700]in the variety trials this year.
[00:22:23.780]I don't have a lot of traits and talking points
[00:22:26.660]on this variety yet, just because it's so new.
It was in the upper 10
[00:22:32.530]variety performers last year.
[00:22:35.330]And so I think that it makes us
[00:22:37.500]be a little more excited this year
[00:22:38.910]to see what's gonna happen with it.
[00:22:41.920]But yeah, we like to see a number of years
[00:22:45.180]before we get overly excited.
[00:22:46.860]We don't have a lot of data about it.
[00:22:49.730]But it did perform well last year in plot.
[00:22:54.220]And next we're gonna move
[00:22:55.210]into two CoAXium varieties that Croplan has.
[00:22:59.150]The first one is 7050,
[00:23:01.810]CoAXium for those of you that aren't aware
[00:23:03.400]that's a non GMO trait,
[00:23:06.000]that allows for ACC/ACE inhibitors to be sprayed.
[00:23:09.670]So it's a non GMO wheat,
[00:23:10.900]but you can spray ACCS inhibitors,
[00:23:13.740]so that's for control of grassy weeds.
[00:23:16.530]So definitely important,
[00:23:18.380]more so as we move west at least in South Central
[00:23:22.610]and Eastern Nebraska grassy weeds
[00:23:23.910]aren't as much of a problem in corn
[00:23:25.250]and soybean country with wheat in the rotation.
[00:23:27.880]This is an early and returning variety good test weight,
[00:23:30.520]good resistance to stripe rust
[00:23:31.980]is what the company has marketed again,
[00:23:33.660]it's brand new, so new variety in entry
[00:23:36.060]in South Central Nebraska.
[00:23:40.150]Any comments or observations this year
[00:23:42.210]it's brand new Todd.
[00:23:44.534]I don't think we have this one in our plot over Farland.
[00:23:47.730]But it does look like it could be a really good variety
[00:23:51.800]to look at, is probably we don't have as many people
[00:23:56.480]probably in that herbicide (murmurs) region.
[00:24:00.190]Same thing over here,
[00:24:01.530]so they do have another one we'll just mention briefly,
[00:24:03.930]CP7017 released in 2020 here
[00:24:08.510]CoAXium variety new entry,
[00:24:10.740]new variety in the trial so we won't spend much time on it.
[00:24:13.380]We'll see how variety trial results come out here in 2020.
[00:24:17.670]So we're gonna go ahead and move into AgriMaxx.
[00:24:19.840]It's a company that's really in the soft wheat market
[00:24:22.480]they have a two, now hard red winter wheats
[00:24:26.990]for the Great Plains, AM Eastwood
[00:24:30.340]and is one that was tested in the past,
[00:24:33.890]wasn't entered in the trial this year
[00:24:36.870]in South Central Nebraska but they did enter
[00:24:38.800]in AM Cartwright a brand new variety from AgriMaxx.
[00:24:41.660]It was developed by K-State,
[00:24:43.440]and then licensed to AgriMaxx,
[00:24:45.350]so it does have a K-State breeding program.
[00:24:47.990]So far what we've seen, excellent disease resistance
[00:24:51.329]down in Oklahoma, from variety trials I've looked at
[00:24:54.813]and so the company says it does have good baking quality
[00:24:57.950]and competitive yields and a good
[00:24:59.250]disease resistance package.
[00:25:00.960]I don't have a lot of details on what disease resistance
[00:25:03.970]that package looks like.
[00:25:05.360]There isn't anything on the company website yet.
[00:25:08.880]But so far it looks pretty sharp in the plots I thought,
[00:25:12.260]down at Jefferson County.
[00:25:13.540]So observations there in Harlan County.
[00:25:16.960]I think this is the shortest wheat
[00:25:19.130]we have this year.
[00:25:20.100]I mean, it does look good, it came up, greened up.
[00:25:23.937]Probably one of our earlier ones.
[00:25:25.190]It's look dominant looking at it this year.
[00:25:27.363]So we'll just have to see what the yields are on it.
[00:25:29.930]But sometimes you have wheats that surprise you
[00:25:33.828]that you think you're gonna be wonderful
[00:25:34.990]and they don't yield that well, but this was one of them,
[00:25:37.850]it's a really short wheat,
[00:25:39.123]I really liked and it looks like it could
[00:25:41.830]be a wonderful year over two but we'll see what happens.
[00:25:44.600]Yep, agree it looks pretty sharp in Jefferson County too
[00:25:48.290]at least looks good, that's for sure.
[00:25:52.160]Next we'll move on to AgriPro.
[00:25:53.510]They have three entries this year,
[00:25:56.810]the first one here pretty well known variety
[00:25:59.350]across the region SY Monument,
[00:26:02.760]here at the Harlan County plot.
[00:26:06.470]Didn't look quite as sharp at the Jefferson County plot
[00:26:09.120]this year as it has in years past
[00:26:10.980]so we'll see what it does for yield.
[00:26:13.500]A pretty broad adaptability variety,
[00:26:16.330]pretty well known it's the most planted variety
[00:26:18.380]in Nebraska according to the survey in 2019
[00:26:20.950]so up there with Ruth, good resistance
[00:26:23.290]to stripe and leaf rust, I think that's probably
[00:26:26.390]been one reason growers have liked it so much.
[00:26:28.420]It's a high tillering capacity, good winter hardiness.
[00:26:31.150]One thing that we did note last year
[00:26:33.100]when Steven (murmurs) our small grains
[00:26:35.420]plant pathologist did have it rated as a nine,
[00:26:39.020]for Fusirium head blight
[00:26:40.150]which is the poorest rating you can get,
[00:26:42.010]so it is very susceptible to scab.
[00:26:44.320]So and the company does say,
[00:26:46.000]don't plant it after corn specifically
[00:26:47.830]has it marketed after soybean
[00:26:49.480]so if you are planting it definitely something
[00:26:52.260]to be on the lookout come early flowering
[00:26:54.790]for a scab risk.
[00:26:57.700]Yeah, this is one of them,
[00:27:00.270]we have a plot over in Furnace County
[00:27:01.663]about four or five years ago.
[00:27:04.130]And Monument what was the top yielding there.
[00:27:07.200]So I think that's why at one time,
[00:27:10.050]it was really really popular
[00:27:11.510]and it probably still is about the planet.
[00:27:14.110]People have really liked it on rain fed conditions.
[00:27:18.300]But we're or hopefully there'll be some other
[00:27:21.260]replacement ones for it that people will,
[00:27:23.160]like to say, looking at it this year,
[00:27:27.020]it doesn't look as good as it has been in some other years.
[00:27:30.490]And it may be just the type of year
[00:27:33.240]that it was invented as well.
[00:27:37.260]Maybe it was get a little bit harder
[00:27:38.950]on the freeze than we thought it was,
[00:27:41.628]in the early spring.
[00:27:46.910]Moving into a little bit newer varieties side benefit
[00:27:50.270]from AgriPro released in 2018.
[00:27:52.800]Intermediate resistance to Fusarium head blight
[00:27:55.210]rated pretty high for scab resistance last year
[00:27:57.380]in the eastern Nebraska variety trials
[00:27:59.090]where we had pressure.
[00:28:00.210]It is an early maturing wheat variety,
[00:28:03.090]excellent milling and baking quality.
[00:28:05.570]Last year, we had quite a bit of leaf rust
[00:28:07.360]in the unsprayed plots in eastern Nebraska
[00:28:09.640]and it was rated a nine, which is the lowest
[00:28:12.800]rating for leaf rust.
[00:28:13.980]So probably the most susceptible variety
[00:28:16.420]out of varieties entered last year for leaf rust.
[00:28:20.570]Straw strength is average,
[00:28:22.120]so it's something definitely to consider
[00:28:23.960]whether it's under irrigation or pushing this variety.
[00:28:28.530]Any observations on benefit?
[00:28:31.610]Well, I mean, it's, it seems like maybe
[00:28:34.700]a little above average on its appearance,
[00:28:38.170]but it's one of them,
[00:28:39.430]I would be really nervous about hitting more than
[00:28:41.870]a third of my acres to it because
[00:28:43.220]of this susceptibility to leaf rust.
[00:28:45.890]It hasn't proven that it's just gone the pieces this year
[00:28:49.450]by visuals, but that would be wanna be
[00:28:52.000]a little more cautious about that until
[00:28:54.990]we get more data on that.
[00:28:57.200]It looked okay this year.
[00:29:01.400]Okay, a new one called Wolverine
[00:29:05.000]released in 2019 from AgriPro.
[00:29:08.030]This is a second year in the trials
[00:29:09.480]it was an experimental variety
[00:29:11.710]in some of the trials last year in Nebraska.
[00:29:14.270]Medium early variety, broad adaptability
[00:29:16.580]that company is saying outstanding yield performance
[00:29:19.390]exceeds Monument and Sunrise.
[00:29:21.290]And I've seen both sunrise and monument in the past,
[00:29:26.200]they're moderately resistant to leaf rust.
[00:29:28.360]A little bit about the background of Wolverine
[00:29:29.717]and it has both wolf which
[00:29:32.130]was a very popular variety over the years
[00:29:34.240]here in Eastern and South Central Nebraska,
[00:29:36.350]and also Everest.
[00:29:37.440]So it has Everest wolf background.
[00:29:40.270]So both good varieties in their own right at the time,
[00:29:43.940]so I'll be curious to see what some of those traits
[00:29:46.790]how they are carried forward,
[00:29:48.860]here in terms of performance.
[00:29:50.360]Here's a picture of it fairly short variety
[00:29:54.230]at the Jefferson County plots this year
[00:29:56.030]with some Barley Yellow Dwarf,
[00:29:58.360]overall looks looks okay.
[00:30:00.090]So this first year, we've had Wolverine
[00:30:01.820]in the Jefferson County plots.
In Harlan County,
[00:30:05.770]it was in the top 10 yield or varieties last year,
[00:30:08.840]so we're really excited.
[00:30:10.810]But like Nathan said, it's shorter stature
[00:30:13.550]that people been used to the Monument
[00:30:15.580]and they're thinking, well,
[00:30:16.413]we're gonna look at this as a replacement.
[00:30:18.250]It won't be exactly the same monument
[00:30:20.410]that you've been used to.
[00:30:21.290]But yeah, we'll just have to see,
[00:30:24.510]I don't know whether it's reacting
[00:30:26.960]to our weather conditions this year,
[00:30:28.430]but it doesn't look the same this year did last year,
[00:30:30.760]it looks a little bit shorter stature
[00:30:32.710]doesn't look quite as thick and in tillery,
[00:30:36.802]the tillering was a little lacking compared
[00:30:38.330]to what it was last year.
[00:30:39.370]So maybe just a year I'm not sure.
[00:30:43.180]What's has been in the variety trials for a long time
[00:30:46.350]in the region was not entered this year.
[00:30:48.450]And that was obviously a very high performing
[00:30:52.160]variety for Nebraska in the past.
[00:30:56.100]So that is obviously still available,
[00:30:59.370]but Wolverine is something obviously
[00:31:01.360]to consider with that wolf background moving forward.
[00:31:05.000]That kind of ends up the Syngenta AgriPro lines,
[00:31:08.990]any comments on those Todd real quick.
[00:31:11.270]Well I'll just comment briefly on Wolverine
[00:31:13.450]it was real similar yielder to Wolverine last year
[00:31:16.350]and it was a real good yielder
[00:31:18.570]but like was mentioned we didn't have (murmurs)
[00:31:21.420]this year but still we're thinking about it.
[00:31:25.910]Okay, next lineup is from WestBred,
[00:31:28.520]so this will kind of wrap up our commercial varieties
[00:31:31.910]and then we'll take a break.
[00:31:34.450]So WestBred has seven varieties this year
[00:31:36.310]in South Central trials.
[00:31:37.450]They have four entries in the Eastern Nebraska trials.
[00:31:39.790]This is a picture of Grainfield in Harlan County,
[00:31:43.373]looking pretty sharp there Todd.
[00:31:45.980]So we'll talk about Grainfield.
[00:31:47.700]It is an older varieties released back in 2012
[00:31:50.180]already so how time flies,
[00:31:52.350]broadly adapted to the Great Plains.
[00:31:54.130]High yield potential if you look at variety trials,
[00:31:57.600]Jefferson County, Lancaster here on the eastern side.
[00:32:00.240]When sprayed with the fungicide has excellent yield
[00:32:04.600]potential, good tillering ability.
[00:32:06.710]One thing we have noticed with Grainfield
[00:32:08.616]in higher moisture years in good yield environments
[00:32:12.700]it has averaged standability.
[00:32:14.180]So we have seen some lodging similar
[00:32:16.800]to Long Branch probably not quite as susceptible
[00:32:19.300]as Long Branch but average stainability maybe
[00:32:21.360]could some of the other WestBred lines
[00:32:22.940]in the trials this year.
[00:32:24.320]It is very susceptible to head scab,
[00:32:26.420]stripe rust and leaf rust.
[00:32:28.180]So, those have changed since it was released,
[00:32:32.200]very susceptible to all three.
[00:32:35.190]So fungicide program if you're still planting
[00:32:37.060]this variety is something to consider.
[00:32:39.570]I did talk to WestBred technical agronomist
[00:32:42.200]their marketing which we'll talk about
[00:32:43.750]WestBred 4401 is a new release
[00:32:45.910]from WestBred this year that isn't in a variety trials,
[00:32:49.010]is a replacement for Grainfield,
[00:32:51.040]and so we'll talk a little bit more about that variety.
[00:32:55.970]Yeah, Grainfield is one that looks really pretty.
[00:32:58.330]I mean, kind of like (murmurs),
[00:33:00.520]it looks looks wonderful to look at it,
[00:33:03.556]and it's had pretty good leaf health
[00:33:05.920]as far as this year goes.
[00:33:07.420]That's a little bit of things
[00:33:08.978]but again, especially some of the traits
[00:33:12.340]that it's gonna be some susceptibilities to that.
[00:33:15.460]It might be one you have to be a little bit careful
[00:33:17.750]maybe look for some replacement ones.
[00:33:23.120]Next is WestBred 4303, released in 2015,
[00:33:28.843]Very high yield potential.
[00:33:30.830]We've seen this top out the numerically yields
[00:33:34.500]on variety trials in the past in Nebraska,
[00:33:36.860]marketed kind of as eastern Nebraska variety
[00:33:39.580]and irrigated variety in further West,
[00:33:42.320]it does have decent wheat streak mosaic virus.
[00:33:44.710]That's the movement under pivots further west
[00:33:47.340]response in tests and management.
[00:33:50.100]Back in Washington County a few years ago,
[00:33:52.380]we had really tall wheat that was pushed with nitrogen
[00:33:54.990]and we had several storms with 6070 mile an hour winds
[00:33:58.650]and this was the only variety that didn't launch.
[00:34:01.410]So in terms of standability,
[00:34:02.980]probably one of the best of the varieties
[00:34:05.677]and the trials for standability.
[00:34:07.320]So if that's something you're looking
[00:34:08.490]for something to consider desirable grain quality.
[00:34:11.810]One thing that we have seen this is,
[00:34:12.807]it has some summit backgrounds program,
[00:34:15.820]they heads pretty unique.
[00:34:17.670]It's definitely something you can tell
[00:34:19.270]it's WestBred 4303 just by looking at it in the head.
[00:34:22.180]It puts on a lot of berries and so we have seen low test
[00:34:25.030]weight with this variety compared to other varieties
[00:34:28.390]and depending on what your local grain elevator does
[00:34:31.160]for doc that can become an issue with
[00:34:34.380]low test weight in certain years with this variety.
[00:34:36.420]It is moderately susceptible to stripe rust
[00:34:38.340]and Fusarium head blight.
[00:34:40.330]So, leaf rust resistance pretty good,
[00:34:43.970]average winter hardiness so it's not
[00:34:45.610]a variety I'd recommend in Northeast Nebraska.
[00:34:48.570]We have had some reports of winter kill
[00:34:50.820]moving this variety further north
[00:34:52.470]but I think along the south central Nebraska
[00:34:54.560]what we're fine most years quite
[00:34:57.130]not that tillering potential as some other varieties,
[00:34:59.570]so its the one you don't wanna have
[00:35:01.020]a low seeding rate on,
[00:35:01.853]wanna to push the seeding rate a little higher.
[00:35:06.510]And I think it's one that we had in our plot this year
[00:35:09.900]because of the change on where we were last year.
[00:35:12.910]It wasn't in our mix of varieties,
[00:35:14.990]and so we're learning about it.
[00:35:16.960]I mean, it looks good, but we'll just have to see.
[00:35:22.280]The dividing line I talked to the WestBred
[00:35:25.280]technical agronomist, highway 183
[00:35:27.700]which runs right through your area.
[00:35:30.150]Todd is kind of the dividing line between
[00:35:32.300]some of these varieties.
[00:35:33.133]So I will summarize that when we get done
[00:35:34.980]on kind of company placement on the seven varieties.
[00:35:38.460]Next one is WestBred 4269.
[00:35:41.010]Released in 2017, moderately resistant to head scab,
[00:35:45.400]one of the better ones for head scab in the region,
[00:35:48.810]K-State seeing the same thing,
[00:35:50.520]good standability not as good as 4303
[00:35:54.480]but pretty good, early maturing.
[00:35:55.980]If you look at the numbering system for WestBred,
[00:35:58.060]that second number has to do with the maturity
[00:36:00.480]on their varieties moving forward,
[00:36:02.720]good resistance to leaf rust.
[00:36:05.490]It is a fairly short variety though,
[00:36:07.740]it may not fill the rows quite as much,
[00:36:10.210]it has good tillering potential,
[00:36:11.550]but something that's not gonna close the roads
[00:36:13.360]early in the year, especially if you're 10
[00:36:16.860]So any observations on a 4269 this year Todd?
[00:36:19.940]And this is another one we're learning about this year,
[00:36:23.260]it didn't have as much (murmurs), maybe some others
[00:36:26.780]and so I think it got a little more (murmurs) fiber,
[00:36:29.724](murmurs) that came through.
[00:36:32.440]But we'll see.
[00:36:33.273]I mean, as far as the look of the head,
[00:36:36.140]it looks good, you know that way
[00:36:37.700]and so we'll see what happens.
[00:36:39.990]It's done well further east,
[00:36:42.000]and this is one of the varieties marketed more
[00:36:44.020]for west or east of highway 183, Todd.
[00:36:49.590]So we'll talk a little bit more about that.
[00:36:54.640]This is one that is kind of from highway 183 West.
[00:36:58.310]So Grainfield, pretty broad adaptability
[00:37:02.100]but WestBred 4303 and 4269
[00:37:04.690]that we just talked about are probably
[00:37:06.860]east of highway 183,
[00:37:12.140]west of that for WestBred 4303
[00:37:14.340]so this would be more of a Western adapted variety
[00:37:16.250]WestBred 4595 released in 2018.
[00:37:20.430]Medium height short,
[00:37:22.050]fairly short this year in the variety trials,
[00:37:25.240]medium maturity good test weight,
[00:37:27.230]one of the better rated varieties
[00:37:29.300]from WestBred for test weight.
[00:37:30.500]Good drought tolerance and stainability
[00:37:32.120]which is what you'd wanna see moving west.
[00:37:34.500]Second year in the Clay and Harlan County trials,
[00:37:37.390]first year in the Jefferson County trials.
[00:37:39.780]It is susceptible to soil borne mosaic virus
[00:37:42.850]and it is moderately susceptible to Fusarium Head Blight.
[00:37:45.680]So definitely a variety in Todd's area
[00:37:48.550]that you wouldn't wanna put probably
[00:37:49.890]after corn follow because of that scab susceptibility
[00:37:53.270]and something that I'm a little bit more concerned
[00:37:55.080]about here in Jefferson County
[00:37:57.350]from soil borne mosaic virus as well.
[00:38:01.700]And it did really well in our yield trials last year,
[00:38:06.510]it was just out the top 10 but it is right
[00:38:08.500]in that same region there
[00:38:09.730]so it did really well, 100 bushel acre last year.
[00:38:15.300]But again, it doesn't look quite as thick
[00:38:18.100]as some of other varieties planted
[00:38:21.330]at the same seeding rate,
[00:38:24.164]but we'll have to see what happens this year.
[00:38:28.110]Next one is WestBred 4699.
[00:38:30.780]This is a second year that's been entered
[00:38:32.430]in the variety trials on here on the eastern side.
[00:38:36.580]Really was impressed with this variety last year.
[00:38:39.300]It was the top yielding variety in the Jefferson
[00:38:41.810]and Clay County trials.
[00:38:43.680]So for our Eastern two locations
[00:38:45.790]in South Central Nebraska was the top yielding
[00:38:47.850]variety for yield.
[00:38:48.730]Excellent standability, close to 4303 improvement
[00:38:53.700]over 4269 for standability.
[00:38:56.880]Probably one of the best first head scab resistance,
[00:38:59.930]I would rate it as a three and when you're talking
[00:39:03.100]about some other varieties,
[00:39:04.510]WestBred 4269, Zenda, Overland,
[00:39:07.930]are kind of in that four.
[00:39:09.050]So it might be a tad better than some
[00:39:11.010]other more scab resistant varieties in the past.
[00:39:14.290]Good resistance to leaf rust,
[00:39:18.590]One thing to note on this variety
[00:39:20.150]if you look at the variety trial results last year,
[00:39:22.800]Jefferson County did have low protein
[00:39:24.920]so it was the highest yielding
[00:39:26.030]but also had pretty low protein.
[00:39:27.460]So the company has this as a special note
[00:39:30.240]specifically managed nitrogen
[00:39:33.270]to promote protein concentration in this variety.
[00:39:38.490]This will be our learning year for it in our plot.
[00:39:41.160]This is our first year having the plot here.
[00:39:44.270]It was a little this year, last year look great
[00:39:47.710]for tillering potential and tillering Lancaster plot.
[00:39:50.620]This year, it looks great here and Lincoln down
[00:39:53.430]in Jefferson County is a little thin.
[00:39:55.820]So I don't know if that was due to the late planting
[00:40:00.310]or the early freeze affecting tillering
[00:40:03.407]but a little bit thinner than what we saw it
[00:40:05.580]last year, so we'll see what results bring this year.
[00:40:10.020]Next one WestBred 4792.
[00:40:12.620]This is another variety marketed for West of highway 183.
[00:40:17.190]Where Todd's at,
[00:40:18.760]so not something recommended for placement
[00:40:20.880]here further east.
[00:40:22.130]It's got a strong Western adaption obviously
[00:40:24.180]with good resistance to wheat streak mosaic virus,
[00:40:26.600]medium to late maturity.
[00:40:28.680]Good strike brass resistance,
[00:40:29.980]it yielded well Todd and it looked like
[00:40:31.900]in the in test weight last year in the trials,
[00:40:35.010]second year in the trials.
[00:40:36.330]One thing to note it is susceptible to scab,
[00:40:39.320]probably even more so than 4595
[00:40:41.709]and is susceptible to soil borne again.
[00:40:44.070]So definitely a Western adaption variety.
[00:40:47.730]Was an outstanding yielder last year
[00:40:49.490]and so I think that's what's got us excited about it.
[00:40:52.847]And it has a little more showing us
[00:40:54.880]and some of the other ones that we've had
[00:40:57.180]in the next year but but we'll see what happens this year.
[00:41:03.110]The yellowing on those leaves on this picture
[00:41:05.290]that's from Barley Yellow Dwarf
[00:41:06.910]at the Jefferson County plots.
[00:41:10.500]Last variety for WestBred,
[00:41:12.650]I'm excited about this variety for South Central Nebraska,
[00:41:18.370]It's got improved milling and baking quality
[00:41:20.480]over some of the past releases.
[00:41:23.070]From WestBred for our region,
[00:41:25.940]rated at two for milling and baking quality,
[00:41:28.420]which is awesome to see.
[00:41:29.880]Intermediate resistance to head scab
[00:41:31.640]probably rated about a five,
[00:41:34.338]4269 would probably be about a four
[00:41:36.930]and then of course 4699 is three.
[00:41:39.330]So pretty good for intermediate resistance to scab,
[00:41:42.597]good protein, high yield potential
[00:41:46.150]it has good stripe rust and soil borne mosaic resistance.
[00:41:49.580]It is a new variety in the trial this year,
[00:41:52.810]so we can't get too excited about before
[00:41:55.060]we see the yields but in terms of traits
[00:41:57.070]that looks like it'll fit well.
[00:41:58.480]It is marketed as a replacement For Westbred Grainfield,
[00:42:03.890]the company does suggest in kind of that high yield
[00:42:06.630]environment it is a little bit a medium
[00:42:08.340]to medium tall variety.
[00:42:10.540]So if you're pushing it on water and nitrogen,
[00:42:12.720]it's something they do mention you might
[00:42:14.210]wanna look at a growth regulator on,
[00:42:18.077]in those early growth stages a product like palisade,
[00:42:22.240]for example, would be one example of a growth regulator
[00:42:25.570]to look at.
[00:42:26.650]In terms of standability or lodging,
[00:42:29.220]it is better than WestBred Grainfield
[00:42:32.040]probably similar to WestBred 4269,
[00:42:35.880]so an improvement of standability over
[00:42:37.530]Grainfield which is also (murmurs).
[00:42:41.440]Observations out there, Todd this year.
[00:42:43.927]It's just not quite as showy as Grainfield,
[00:42:47.190]but then you don't get paid on showing this I guess.
[00:42:49.916]We'll see how you don't do this will be kind
[00:42:52.840]of our first year learning about it
[00:42:55.430]as far as how it's gonna do,
[00:42:56.730]but it does look like it's got the ruggedness
[00:43:00.270]we'd like to have in our region here,
[00:43:01.860]but we'll just have to see what the yields are.
[00:43:04.930]Yep, same thing here.
[00:43:07.000]Out of the WestBred varieties in the Jefferson County plot
[00:43:09.930]probably looks like it has the currently
[00:43:12.530]the highest yield potential out of their lineup,
[00:43:15.390]but we'll see what the combine says.
[00:43:19.940]that wraps up our commercial varieties.
[00:43:21.930]We're gonna go ahead and stop the recording
[00:43:23.550]and then we'll cover the long term checks and references.
[00:43:26.110]So watch this last video for us,
[00:43:28.820]to learn a little bit about history.
[00:43:30.950]So rejoin us for the third video in this series.
