'Morey' is a soft red winter wheat (Tri.ticum aestivum:: L.)

cooperatively developed and released by the Georgia and Florida

Agricultural Experiment Stations in 1994. It was named to honor

Dr. D. D. Morey, the former small grain breeder at'the Coastal

Plain Station, Tifton, Georgia. Morey was derived from a single

cross made in 1985 at the University of Florida: FL8172-

G116/Florida 303. FL8172-G116 is a sister line to Florida 304 and

has the following pedigree: FL74265-10-A2-B2/Coker 80-29. The

cultivar was developed using a modified pedigree method of

breeding. Individual spike selections were made in the F3, F4, and

F5 generations at Tifton, GA. Morey was selected as an F5 headrow

in 1990. Morey was tested experimentally as GA85238-C5-AB5-4. It

was:first included in yield evaluations in 1991. It was included

in state trials in Georgia and Florida in 1992 and 1993 and in the

Uniform Southern Soft Red Winter Wheat Nursery at about 30

locations in 1992 and 1993.

Morey has a low vernalization requirement and is very early

maturing in the Southeast. It is a medium height at maturity,

white-chaffed, awned, and characterized by good straw strength with

High yield potential. .It::is about 5 days earlier in maturity and

;- 3 inches shorter than Florida :304 and has excellent lodging

ri;: resistance : Milling and baking quality characteristics of Morey

are rated acceptable for soft red winter wheat use by the USDA-Soft

Wheat Quality Laboratory, Wooster, Ohio.

Morey is resistant to the biotypes E, G, M, and of Hessian

fly (Mavetioia destructor (Say)) present in Georgia and Florida.

It is resistant to current races of leaf rust caused by Puccinia

recondita (Rob. ex Desm.), and powdery mildew caused by Erysiphe

g-raminis f. sp. tritici Em. Marchal.

Performance and agronomic characteristics of Morey compared to

other varieties currently available when grown in Georgia is

presented in Tables 1 and 2. Performance when grown in Florida is

presented in Tables 3-9.

Breeder seed will be maintained by the Georgia Agricultural

Experiment Station, University of Georgia, Georgia Station,

Griffin, GA 30223-1797. Application for plant variety protection

will be made to the Plant Variety Protection Office and it will

specify that Morey is to be sold by variety name only as a class of

certified seed.
