Short stature winter wheats yielded more than taller commercial varieties in irrigated trials and on dryland in a 35-inch rainfall area but about the same or less on dryland in areas having 25 and 20 inches of annual rainfall. One short wheat strain responded the same as the taller variety, ‘Concho’, to differences in row spacing and planting rate but gave a greater yield response to a high rate of applied nitrogen. Quality characteristics were not associated with plant height.
