Eureka (C. I. 17738) is a hard red spring wheat variety developed by the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station and released on January 1, 1978. Designated SD 2185 while being tested, Eureka combines high yield with good quality and exhibits resistance to stem rust and leaf rust. With these characteristics, Eureka provides a good alternative for producers who prefer standard height, awnless varieties.
Seed increased by the Foundation Seed Stock Division, SDSU, was released to seed growers (Crop Improvement Association) for 1978 planting. Registered and Certified seed will be available for 1979 planting. Plant Variety Protection has been applied for, and Eureka can only be sold by variety name, as a class of certified seed.
