Sockeye CL+

Overview

Overview: Sockeye CL+ is a 2-gene imazamox tolerant, semi-dwarf, soft white winter wheat with average plant height, mid-season maturity, common head type, and white straw and glumes. It is intended to replace acres currently occupied by ORCF-102, UI Magic, UI Castle, and Resilience CL+. Area of adaptation and primary use of the variety: Sockeye CL+ is appears to be adapted to intermediate and high rainfall zones of Washington and North Idaho, as well as locations in Northern Oregon. Sockeye CL+ is a wheat intended for use in cookies, cakes and pastries. Variants and Frequency: Phenotypic Variant: 1/50,000 in any combination of tall white common awned heads and awnless white chaff common heads. Seed Variant: Up to 5 red seed per pound in all classes of certified production. Resistance to diseases and pests: Stripe Rust Resistance: Sockeye CL+ has a good stripe rust resistance, and scores better than UI Magic, Curiosity CL+, and Mela CL+. Foot Rot Resistance: Approximately 50% of the plant population carry the gene for resistance to Foot Rot. SBWMV: Sockeye 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: Sockeye CL+ has not been tested under field conditions for resistance to C. Stripe. Nematodes: Sockeye CL+ has not been tested for resistance to Nematodes. Snow Mold: Sockeye CL+ scores a 3.75 as soon as snow melts, but after one month of regrowth Sockeye CL+ scores a 5. It's been determined Sockeye CL+ has a good level of tolerance to snow mold. Winter Hardiness: Based on field observations no injuries due to cold conditions, and would be considered cold tolerant.
