Interpretive Summary: ‘Otis’ hard white spring wheat (PI 634866) was developed and jointly released in August 2005 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 United States Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service. Otis is targeted for production in the semiarid and intermediate rainfall (<400 mm of average annual precipitation), non-irrigated wheat production regions of Washington State based on its high grain yield potential, high-temperature adult-plant resistance to local races of stripe rust, partial resistance to the Hessian fly, and superior dual purpose end-use quality for making noodle and bread products.

Technical Abstract: ‘Otis’ hard white spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) (Reg. no. CV- 988, PI 634866) was developed and jointly released in August 2005 by the Agricultural Research Center of Washington State University in cooperation with the Agricultural Experiment Stations (AESs) of the University of Idaho and Oregon State University, and the United States Department of Agriculture-Agricultural Research Service (USDA-ARS). Otis was named in honor of Kody 'Otis' Kidwell, beloved nephew of and inspiration to Dr. Kidwell. Otis is targeted for production in the semiarid and intermediate rainfall (<400 mm of average annual precipitation), non-irrigated wheat production regions of Washington State based on its high grain yield potential, high-temperature adult-plant resistance to local races of stripe rust (Puccinia striiformis Westend. f. sp. tritici), partial resistance to the Hessian fly [Mayetiola destructor (Say)], and superior dual purpose end-use quality for making noodle and bread products.
