Interpretive Summary: The purpose of the Uniform Bread Wheat Trial (UBWT) is to evaluate hard endosperm, bread quality, winter habit cultivars and advanced lines for adaptation to the high rainfall, humid environments of the eastern United States. The entries in this 1st UBWT were selected from public and private breeding programs in the southern and central Great Plains. A total of 41 entries (33 hard red, 4 hard white, and 4 soft red) were included in the trial. There were nine testing locations for the 2002-03 UBWT, with one in Georgia, three in North Carolina, three in Virginia, one in Kentucky, and one in Pennsylvania. One location in Maryland (Wye Mills) was planted but subsequently lost to flooding.
