'Mott' Hard Red Spring Wheat (RFP-164)



'Mott' was developed by the Spring Wheat Breeding Program at North Dakota State University and released by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station in the spring of 2009.

'Mott' is a hard red spring wheat developed primarily for its resistance to the wheat stem sawfly and adaptation to the western region of North Dakota where sawfly can limit production. It is a medium-tall, awned wheat that matures approximately 2 days later than 'Reeder' and 'Choteau'.

'Mott' is susceptible to FHB, susceptible to moderately susceptible to prevalent races of leaf rust. It is resistant to moderately resistant to prevalent races of stem rust. It is susceptible to tan spot and resistant to Stagonospora leaf blotch. It has resistance to the wheat stem sawfly, exhibiting a low level of sawfly infestation compared with other susceptible varieties.

'Mott' has demonstrated above average milling and baking characteristics. It has better than average grain protein content, higher loaf volume, and stronger mix characteristics compared with other sawfly resistant hard red spring wheat varieties.

To help ensure genetic purity, 'Mott' is protected by PVPA Title V (certificate No. 201000057) and must be sold as a class of certified seed.
