Available: http://wheat.pw.usda.gov/GG2/index.shtml. Technical Abstract: The Hard Red Spring Wheat Uniform Regional Nursery (HRSWURN) was planted for the 77th year in 2005. The nursery contained 34 entries submitted by 9 different scientific or industry breeding programs, and 5 checks. The HRSWURN was planted at 20 locations in 7 different States in the U.S. (MN, ND, SD, MT, NE, WY, and WA), and 2 Canadian Provinces (Manitoba and Saskatchewan). Eighteen locations provided data for inclusion in this report. Data summaries for each of these locations are presented in Tables 3 through 20. For each location summary, entries are listed in descending order of yield. Overall means across locations for a set of core traits are summarized as are yield rankings for individual locations. Two-year means for entries previously entered in the 2004 HRSWURN are also presented. Entries were also evaluated for various diseases at different locations; these data can be found in individual location data summaries. Seedling and adult plant leaf rust resistance were evaluated in St. Paul, MN, and adult plant stem rust resistance was also evaluated at this location. These data are presented as well. The highest average yielding location was Powell, WY, with 103 Bu/Ac, while the lowest yielding location was Sidney, NE, with 22 Bu/Ac. The average yield across the 18 locations was 49.1 Bu/Ac.
