Registration of 'Snowglenn' Winter Durum Wheat
Additional Document Info
'Snowglenn' (Reg. No. CV-1054, PI 659070) winter durum wheat (Triticum turgidum subsp. durum) developed and tested as VA05WD-40 by the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station was released in March 2008. Snowglenn was derived from the three-way cross N1291-86/N1439-83//'Alidur'. Snowglenn is a full-season, medium-height, winter durum wheat having good winter hardiness, high grain volume weight, and moderate resistance to Fusarium head blight [caused by Fusarium graminearum (Schwabe)]. In Virginia, Snowglenn was the highest-yielding winter durum line tested in 2006 (5308 kg ha -1 ) and 2008 (4824 kg ha -1 ). Data from Austria indicates that Snowglenn is moderately susceptible to powdery mildew [caused by Blumeria graminis (DC) E.O. Speer], leaf rust (caused by Puccinia triticina Eriks.), and leaf blotch (caused by Septoria tritici Roberge in Desmaz.). Grain of Snowglenn has satisfactory quality for use in blends with traditional spring durum grain for pasta production. Crop Science Society of America.
