Abstract: Yield goals of 1.7 to 2.2 T ha-1 and protein quality targets of 13.5% or more were not universally achieved in 2000 spring milling wheat organic cultivar seed increases carried out in three locations. Wheat yields ranged from1.1 to 2.0 T ha-1. Milling protein ranged from 11.3 to 14.1%, with most results below 13.5%. Bake tests show all cultivars have potential as commercial bread wheats.
