HERBICIDE RESISTANCE: tolerant to glyphosate

Origin & Breeding History: 'D4923560' (previously known as 29-52R) is the result of a cross made in 2001 between AG1602 and AI2465/AG2101 at Redwood Falls, Minnesota. The F1 and F2 populations were grown at Kehi, Hawaii and advanced using modified single seed descent. The F3 population was grown in bulk at Redwood Falls, Minnesota and advanced using modified single seed descent. The F3 derived F4's were grown at Redwood Falls, Minnesota in progeny rows and the variety '29-52R' was selected based on the agronomic characteristics, including, but not limited to, general plant health, lodging, early emergence, and general disease resistance.

Tests & Trials: Tests were conducted during the summers of 2007 and 2008 in Guelph, Ontario. There were two replicates arranged in a randomized complete block design where first repetition in entry order was used. Each plot consisted of 216 seeds planted in two rows. Rows were spaced 30 inches apart and were twelve feet in length.
