| The Prairie Recommending Committee for Wheat, Rye and Triticale (PRCWRT) evaluates candidate cultivars of wheat, rye and triticale and, upon the request of the owner or designate, makes recommendations to the Variety Registration Office, Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) regarding the suitability of the candidate for registration. Following cultivar registration, publication of the cultivar description is encouraged.
The Canadian Journal of Plant Science (CJPS) is an international peer-reviewed journal edited by the Canadian Society of Agronomy, the Canadian Society for Horticultural Science and the Canadian Weed Science Society. The journal reports original peer-reviewed research on aspects of plant science relevant to continental climate agriculture. Subject areas cover aspects of plant production and management including: agronomy (grain, forage, industrial, and alternative crops), horticulture (fruit, vegetable, ornamental, greenhouse, and alternative crops), and pest management (entomology, plant pathology, and weed science). Cross-disciplinary research in the application of technology, plant breeding, genetics, physiology, biotechnology, microbiology, soil management, economics, meteorology, post-harvest biology and plant production systems are also published.
The following descriptions for wheat, rye and triticale cultivars registered for production in western Canada were first published by the Canadian Journal of Plant Science. The PGDC has obtained permission from the journal to post those that are open-access articles.
For a complete listing of wheat, rye and triticale cultivars recommended for registration since 1959, along with information on the developers and the citations (including those published in other journals), please go to the link on the main WRT Committee page (WRT Recommendations 1959-Present as of February 2016).
