Interpretive Summary: 'Eden' soft white spring club wheat was developed by the Agricultural Research Center of Washington State University in cooperation with the Agricultural Experiment Stations of the University of Idaho and Oregon State University and the USDA-ARS. Eden was released as a replacement for the spring club variety 'Calorwa' in the intermediate to high rainfall, nonirrigated wheat production regions of Washington State based on its high grain yield potential and superior end-use quality. Eden has good resistance to stripe rust. In 2001 and 2002, Eden was resistant to stripe rust. In greenhouse seedling tests conducted in 2001 and 2002, it was highly resistant to predominant races. In field tests conducted in various locations in Washington State from 2001 to 2002, Eden demonstrated moderate to high levels of resistance to stripe rust. It was moderately susceptible to stripe rust in Washington field tests.
