Origin & Breeding History: '4599695' (previously known as 31-53R) is the result of a cross made in 1999 between A3469 and DKB26-52 at Ames, Iowa. The F1 and F2 populations were grown at Isabella, Puerto Rico and advanced using modified single seed descent. The F3 population was grown in bulk at Ames, Iowa and advanced using modified single seed descent. The F3 derived F4's were grown at Ames, Iowa in progeny rows and the variety '31-53R' 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 and trials 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 80 cm apart and were 4 meters in length.
