USGA Summary Points:Seed lots harvested in 2019 from the 2017 Isolation Blocks were scarified and germinated during the winter of 2019-2020. Due to reduced work times of staff because of social distancing imposed by COVID-19 pandemic, the newly produced progeny population (662) could not be planted in 2020. They were instead held over in the greenhouse until the summer of 2021 when they were planted 22 June. A total of 24 new selections (12 red and 12 yellow) were made from the 2017 Isolation Blocks and the 2015 SPN were planted in 2019 Isolation Crossing Blocks (Red vs Yellow). Two of the red seed parents did not grow well in teh isolation block and neighboring entries grew into those plots so the functional number of red seed parents is 10 while the yellow seed parents remain at 12. Seed from the 2019 Yellow Isolation Crossing Block was harvested 27 May 2021. The seed from the 2019 Red Isolation Crossing Block was not harvested since it was negatively impated by the winter. It will be re-evaluated in 2022. Our collaboration with Johnston Seeds has proven to be productive. Their evaluation of our germplasm and seed parents for cold hardiness in Enid, OK has led to the identification of 5 parental lines to be used in two synthetic/polycross nurseries and 8 coarse textured lines for recombination in an isolation block. These nurseries were planted in both Enid, OK and in Dallas. A new collaboration was initiated with Woerner Farms in 2021 with the transfer of 21 of our advanced seeded parental lines and a progeny population consisting of 520 genetically distinct individuals.
