Each year South Dakota farmers have been seeding about 2,250,000 acres of wheat of which 600,000 acres have been winter wheat. Nebred, a Turkey type wheat released in 1938 by Nebraska, has been dominant, constituting about 23% of the winter wheat acreage in 1965 and 45% in 1964. In the severe stem rust year of 1962 Nebred made up about 80% of the acreage. Losses to winter wheat growers from stem rust in 1962 were estimated in excess of $20,000,000. Other varieties susceptible to stem rust and still in use are Warrior, Omaha, Wichita, Cheyenne, and Bison.
