Piranha CL+

Overview

Overview: Piranha CL+ is a 2-gene imazamox tolerant, semi-dwarf, soft white winter wheat with average plant height (averages 35 inches), mid-season maturity, common head type, and white straw and glumes. Area of adaptation and primary use of the variety: Piranha CL+ appears to be adapted across all rainfall zones of Washington and North Idaho. It seems to do best in intermediate and low rainfall zones. Resistance to diseases and pests: Stripe Rust Resistance: Piranha CL+ rated between 0 and 3 for infection type, and between 0 and 20% infection severity. The variety shows a better resistance than UI Magic CL+, Curiosity CL+, and Mela CL+. Foot Rot Resistance: Approximately 50% of the plant population carry the gene for resistance to Foot Rot. SBWMV: Piranha CL+ is not believed to be resistant based on marker data, but there have been no field tests to confirm this. Low pH soils: This variety is moderately tolerant of low pH soil conditions. Cephalosporium Stripe: Piranha CL+ has not been tested under field conditions for resistance to C. Stripe. Nematodes: Piranha CL+ has not been evaluated for resistance to Nematodes. Snow Mold: Piranha CL+ has been tested for tolerance to snow mold, it's tolerance is similar to Curiosity CL+ and Otto. Winter Hardiness: Based on field observations no injuries due to cold conditions, and would be considered cold tolerant.
