Grain yield is generally the most important criterion growers use to select which cultivar to grow. ‘Shelly’ (Reg. No. CV-1150, PI 681618) hard red spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was released by the University of Minnesota Agricultural Experiment Station in 2016 because it combines very high grain yield with acceptable lodging resistance, grain protein concentration and end-use quality characteristics, and good resistance to the diseases Fusarium head blight, leaf rust, stripe rust, and stem rust. Shelly is a mid-late maturity, semidwarf cultivar that is well adapted to the north-central United States and is among the highest-yielding cultivars currently available.
