The need for better varieties of winter wheat is never more apparent than when stem rust is rampant as it was from 1962 to 1965. Among the varieties and lines tested in 1962 was Winalta a new release from Canada. Winalta was among the hardiest varieties, was of excellent milling and baking qualities and was a good yielder but half of its plants were resistant and half were susceptible to stem rust.
