Registration of 'Vision 40' Wheat Academic Article uri icon


  • The potential exists to develop and market hard winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) in the eastern United States, where a majority of the mills, bakeries, and consumers reside. The primary objective of this study was to develop adapted and competitive hard winter wheat cultivars possessing highvalue traits that offer the potential for new and expanded markets and greater profitability to wheat producers in the eastern United States. Vision 40 (Reg. No. CV1063, PI 661154) hard red winter (HRW) wheat was derived from the cross 92PIN#109/92PAN1#33 and released by the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station in March 2010. Vision 40 was developed with a modified bulkbreeding method and was tested as VA06HRW66 in replicated yield trials in Virginia (20072009) and in the eastern region (2008 2009). Vision 40 is a highyielding, winter hardy, awned, semidwarf (Rht2) having mid to lateseason spike emergence and moderate resistance to diseases prevalent in the midAtlantic area with the exception of Fusarium head blight [caused by Fusarium graminearum (Schwabe)]. Vision 40 was the fourth highest yielding HRW wheat entry when averaged over 2 yr of the Uniform Bread Wheat Nursery grown at 11 test sites in 10 states in 2008 and 12 test sites in 9 states in 2009. In comparison with the hard wheat cultivar Lakin (PI 617032), Vision 40 has acceptable enduse quality on the basis of flour yield (70.2 versus 70.3 g 100 g1), flour protein (9.5 versus 9.5 g 100 g1), flour water absorption (58.5 versus 59.1 g 100 g1), dough mixing tolerance (1.7 versus 2.3), puploaf volume (823 versus 803 cm3), and crumb grain scores (3.6 versus 3.7).
