Goodstreak

Goodstreak is medium in maturity about 1 day earlier than Buckskin and 2 days later than Pronghorn. It has a long coleoptile similar in length to Pronghorn and slightly shorter than Buckskin. The mature plant height of Goodstreak is 38 inches. It has moderate straw strength better than Arapahoe, Buckskin, and Pronghorn, but not as good as Wesley. The winter hardiness of Goodstreak is good to very good and comparable to other winter wheat cultivars adapted and commonly grown in Nebraska. Goodstreak is moderately resistant to stem and stripe rust and Hessian fly (better than Buckskin). It is susceptible to leaf rust and wheat streak mosaic virus. Goodstreak was evaluated as NE97465 in Nebraska nurseries. It was selected from the cross SD3055/KS88H164/NE89646. The pedigree SD3055 is ND604/SD2971 where ND604 is Len/Butte/ND526 and SD2971 is a Agent/3/ND441//Waldron/Bluebird/4/Butte/5/Len. The pedigree of KS88H164 is Dular/Eagle//2*Cheney/Larned/3/Tam107. The pedigree of NE89646 is Colt*2/Patrizanka. Goodstreak was developed cooperatively by the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station and the USDA-ARS and released in 2002 by the developing institution and the Wyoming Agricultural Experiment Station. Application for Plant Variety Protection is anticipated.
