Development of Canada Prairie Spring Red (CPSR) Cultivars for Western Canada


Lead Researcher: Dr. Harpinder Randhawa (AAFC - Lethbridge)

Summary: This project responds to the growing potential of the CPSR class for value added niche markets, and will focus on desired protein concentration, with stronger gluten and good milling and end-use quality. It will also focus on mitigating the major production threats for spring wheat through improved resistance, including FHB, wheat midge, rusts, common bunt, leaf spots, and pre-harvest sprouting.
