This report evaluates stem solidness, sawfly resistance/ tolerance, and agronomic performance of new winter wheat lines developed to combat sawfly damage. Forty nine winter wheat lines were seeded no-till re-crop into spring wheat stubble that had experienced severe sawfly cutting in the summer of 2008. The composite of traffic from heavy harrowing and air-drill seeding operations has created poor seed bed conditions in field perimeters of some fields. This condition is particularly evident when surface soils are very dry at seeding.
