Modern breeding of small grains for present and future needs (MESTD - 31066)


High grain yield potential and good baking properties are the two primary traits that plant producers consider when selecting new winter wheat cultivars (Triticum aestivum L.). NS Igra is a modern winter wheat cultivar developed at the Institute of Field and Vegetable Crops, Novi Sad and released in 2016. Cultivar NS Igra was selected from a cross between the French cultivar Aquila and the line Sav/Ren 162 developed from the mapping population between Savannah (Great Britain) and Renesansa (Serbia). The objective of this cross was to develop a modern winter wheat cultivar with the adaptation to the adverse production conditions. NS Igra is an F6 - derived line with the experimental number NS 33-14-3. Commission for the registration of varieties of the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management of the Republic of Serbia conducted trial at multiple locations in two years, and it was found that NS Igra is a distinct, uniform and stable cultivar, and has higher grain yield than average of three check cultivars, and good technological quality. NS Igra is a mid-late maturity, a stay-green cultivar that should improve the stability of grain yield production and overall end-use quality of the winter wheat crop in the southern Pannonian Plain.
