Applications of ResearchApproximately 75% of Hard Red Spring Wheat (HRSW) acres in South Dakota are sown to cultivars developed by the SDSU-HRSW breeding program. The primary objective of the SDSU-HRSW breeding program is to continually improve grower profitability through genetic advancement of agronomic, disease resistance, and end-use quality characteristics associated with new cultivars.
