 ** Semidwarf
 The list above shows the pedigree, selection number and the year a variety or selection 
 was first entered in the uniform test. The number of semidwarf selections grown in this 
 nursery for the period 1968, 1969 and 1970 was 6, 10 and 13, respectively. Data from 20 
 stations are given in Tables 3-1 to 3-20. The average yield at the two irrigated stations, 
 Bozeman and Carrington, was 50.6 and 51.2 Bu/A, respectively. For the entries grown at the 
 non-irrigated stations, the highest average yield was 41.7 Bu/A at Laramie, while the lowest 
 average yield was 15.5 Bu/A at Sheridan (both stations in Wyoming).
 Average bushel weights and yields for entries grown in 1969-70 and 1970 are shown in 
 Table 4. Nine of the thirteen semidwarf selections ranked above the check variety Chris. For 
 the second year in a row, Era ranked first with 35.8, while Chris yielded 28.9 Bu/A. World 
 Seed 1812 had the best bushel weight with 60.3 lbs/Bu, followed by Era and ND496 with a 
 similar value of 60.1 lbs/Bu.
 Miscellaneous agronomic and disease data are summarized in Table 5. The entry 
 H678-1-6-9 headed 4 days earlier than Chris, while Fletcher was 3 days later than Chris. 
 Bonanza was the first to mature, MT6839 the last. The semidwarfs were about 5-P shorter than 
 the standard check varieties.
 Stem rust was relatively scarce in the spring wheat region in 1970. All of the 
 varieties, with the exception of Marquis, had adequate resistance. The shattering percentage 
 was relatively high for Justin, Selkirk, ND499 and ND490.
 Seedling reactions to stem rust of entries in The Uniform Regional Nursery are presented in 
 Table 6-1. Most of the lines provide adequate resistance, although races 151 and 15B-6 
 appear to be the most virulent. Adult field reactions to leaf and stem rust are given in 
 Table 6-2. Rust reactions at Winnipeg are shown in Table 6-3.
