‘Warhorse’ (Reg. No. CV-1096, PI 670157) hard red winter (HRW) wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was developed and released by the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station in September 2013. Warhorse is of unknown pedigree, derived from a composite of three topcrosses made to the same F1 population in 2000: MT9908//‘Nuplains’/MTS9862; Nuplains/MTS9862//MTW0047; and Nuplains/MTS9862//MTS0028. Warhorse was developed using a modified bulk breeding method and selected as an F5:6 headrow. Warhorse was tested under the experimental number MTS0808 from 2008 to 2013 in Montana. Quality was evaluated in multilocation Montana trials since 2008. Warhorse is a solid-stem, high-yielding HRW wheat line with medium to high test weight, medium maturity, reduced height (Rht-B1b), medium to high grain protein, and acceptable milling and baking quality. Warhorse was released for its improved host plant resistance to wheat stem sawfly (Cephus cinctus Nort.) conditioned by stem solidness, along with short stature and improved yield potential relative to existing solid-stem cultivars adapted to Montana.
