DISEASE REACTION: moderately resistant to Septoria tritici blotch (Septoria tritici) and Fusarium head blight (Fusarium graminearum, Fusarium species; based on inoculation trials conducted at the Nairn Research Facility in Ailsa Craig, Ontario), moderately resistant to moderately susceptible to Leaf rust (Puccinia triticina), resistant to Barley Yellow Dwarf virus (6-LOC)

Origin & Breeding History: 'HY419-SRW' (experimental designations TW419-052 and DANW1002) is derived from the cross 'Emmit' (TW044-094)/TW005-008 made in the lab at the Nairn Research Facility, Ailsa Craig, Ontario in 2002-2003. The F1 seed was planted in the lab in 2003 and was doubled using the doubled haploid (maize pollinated) method. The F2 was planted as a single 1.8 metre row in the nursery in the fall of 2004 and selected in the summer of 2005 for appearance and disease tolerances. TW419-052 was entered into a two-replicate trial in the fall of 2005 and subsequent internal yield evaluations through 2010. TW419-052 was tested for two years in the Orthogonal Soft Wheat Trial (OCCC) during the 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 growing seasons.

Tests & Trials: Test and trials for 'HY419-SRW' were conducted during the 2012 and 2013 growing seasons at the Nairn Research Facility, Ailsa Craig, Ontario. Plot size was 4.14 metres squared and consisted of 6 rows. The row length was 3.0 metres with 18 cm spacing between rows. There were 4 replicates in an RCB Design. Measured characteristics were based on 20 measurements per variety per year.
