ND Grano

The NDCISA has rights to the production and distribution of ND Grano durum wheat seed, which was released in 2017.

With a high yield potential comparable to Carpio, good straw strength, and excellent agronomic traits, this variety has a good test weight and medium maturity. When compared to Carpio and Joppa, ND Grano is similar in height but has a higher test weight, DON accumulation, and smaller kernels. The cadmium uptake is lower than the well-know cadmium uptake of Canadian variety of AC Strongfield.

This variety is resistant to leaf and stem rust diseases, while the severity of fusarium head blight disease is similar to that of Joppa. ND Grano’s end use color and firmness characteristics are also favorable.

This durum variety is protected under Plant Variety Title V as a means to ensure genetic purity and can only be sold as a class of certified seed.

ND Riveland

Named in honor of Neil Riveland, a research agronomist and assistant director at the Williston Research Extension Center, ND Riveland durum wheat seed was released in 2017. The NDCISA obtains seed production and distribution rights for this variety.

Compared to all tested varieties in the variety trial across North Dakota, ND Riveland had the highest yield. It also has excellent agronomic traits, very good test weight, medium maturity, and good straw strength. In comparison to Caprio and Joppa, this variety is taller, has larger kernels and a higher test weight.

This variety is very resistant to harmful disease, including both leaf and stem rust diseases. ND Riveland has a lower DON accumulation than Caprio and was the least affected by Fusarium head blight disease than all other varieties tested in both field and greenhouse screening nurseries. Its cadmium uptake is much lower than all varieties tested, including AC Strongfield, a Canadian variety well known for its low cadmium uptake. ND Riveland also features favorable end of use quality characteristics in terms of color and firmness.

This variety is protected under Plant Variety Protection Title V To help ensure genetic purity and must be sold as a class of certified seed.
