‘Antero’ (Reg. No. CV-1093, PI 667743) hard white winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was developed by the Colorado Agricultural Experiment Station and released in August 2012 through a marketing agreement with the Colorado Wheat Research Foundation. In addition to researchers at Colorado State University (CSU), USDA–ARS researchers at Manhattan, KS, St. Paul, MN, and Pullman, WA, participated in its development. Antero was selected from the cross KS01HW152-1/‘TAM 111’ made in 2003 at Fort Collins, CO. TAM 111 (PI 631352) is a hard red winter wheat cultivar released by Texas A&M University in 2002 with the pedigree ‘TAM 107’//TX78V3630/‘Centurk 78’/3/TX87V1233. KS01HW152-1 is an experimental line from Kansas State University with the pedigree ‘Trego’ (PI 612576)/‘Betty’ (PI 612578) Sib. Antero was selected as an F3:4 line in July 2007 and assigned experimental line number CO07W245. Antero was released because of its superior grain yield under nonirrigated and irrigated production conditions in eastern Colorado, its resistance to stripe rust (caused by Puccinia striiformis Westend. f. sp. tritici Eriks.) and stem rust (caused by Puccinia graminis Pers.:Pers. f. sp. tritici Eriks. & E. Henn), and its milling quality attributes. The name Antero was chosen in recognition of Mount Antero (also known as Antero Peak), one of Colorado’s 53 mountains above 4267 m (14,000 ft) elevation.
