LCS CoAXium® Varieties in Wichita, Kansas
Dr. Marla Barnett

My name is Marla Barnett. I'm the wheat breeder for Limagrain Cereal Seeds Central Plains program. Today, you're going to see some video that was filmed in Wichita, Kansas on May 21st, and you'll be looking at plots that were planted October 16th. No fungicide has been applied to these plots, and they were planted under conventional tillage. They have received around 13 and a half inches of rain, starting from January 1st until May 30th.

This set contains release lines belonging to the CoAXium Wheat Production System. All of the lines in this set have at least two genes of tolerance to the Aggressor® herbicide.

LCS Fusion AX is the first line released by Limagrain Cereal Seeds in the CoAXium Wheat Production System. It's medium maturity. It can get a bit tall. It's susceptible to leaf rust, stripe rust, stem rust and Fusarium head blight. A fungicide is recommended to be applied to protect its test weight. LCS Fusion AX does have tolerance to wheat streak mosaic virus.

Next is LCS Photon AX. It's a T158 background with excellent stripe rust resistance — best grazer in the CoAXium Wheat Production System. It's late to break dormancy, but finishes fast.

LCS Atomic AX is the earliest variety released by Limagrain Cereal Seeds in the CoAXium Wheat Production System. It's a T153 background, and again has excellent stripe rust resistance. It has tolerance to acid soil. It also has tolerance to Fusarium head blight. It's a medium coleoptile.

LCS Helix AX is also a T153 background, again with excellent stripe rust resistance. It's early, but about a day or two later than Atomic. It has stem rust resistance and the broadest adaptation among CoAXium released lines. It also has a medium-long coleoptile.

LCS Conventional Varieties in Wichita, Kansas

Hi, I'm Marla Barnett, the wheat breeder for Limagrain Cereal Seeds Central Plains program. We've put together a short video showcasing our release lines in our conventional program. This video was filmed May 21st, about two weeks after heading. Each 225-foot strip that you'll see is signed, and the entire strip is that same line. You'll be looking at plots that were planted October 16th. No fungicide has been applied to these plots, and they were planted under conventional tillage. They have received around 13 and a half inches of rain, starting from January 1st until May 30th.

LCS Julep is a newly released line, released in August of 2019, and it's marketed to replace LCS Mint. We wanted to improve the stripe rust resistance and straw strength of LCS Mint, and we have that in LCS Julep. And if you want to know why we named it Julep, there's a small horse race in Kentucky every year, the Kentucky Derby, and the traditional drink that you drink while attending the Kentucky Derby is a Mint Julep. So remember Julep, and that it's a replacement for LCS Mint with better straw and better stripe rust.

LCS Diesel is a new release, released in August of 2019. It's late, and it's going to be marketed to replace LCS Link. There’s very good leaf health on LCS Diesel, good test weight and excellent straw strength.

LCS Revere. This is set to be our T158 replacement, the goal being to increase the yield and improve the straw strength of T158. And we've done that in LCS Revere, keeping the same maturity as T158 and keeping the adult plant resistance to both leaf rust and stripe rust. So LCS Revere is an early maturing, short T158 replacement with improved yield and improved straw strength, also with wheat streak mosaic virus tolerance.

LCS Valiant. This is a line that was a collaboration between the University of Nebraska and Limagrain Cereal Seeds. It's an early maturing line. It's short, does very well on the High Plains, especially under irrigation, but it also has Fusarium head blight tolerance that can help it move east and be planted on no-till behind corn.

LCS Mint. This is our medium maturity hallmark variety. I always like to refer to LCS Mint when I'm referring to medium maturities. It has excellent milling and baking quality with wheat streak mosaic virus tolerance. You can see that LCS Mint is susceptible to stripe rust.

LCS Chrome. We have excellent stripe rust resistance on LCS Chrome, and it's still holding this year. I've rated it a two. I've always seen a little bit of stripe rust on Chrome, but it's never been more than a two. LCS Chrome is a medium-late to late maturing variety with high protein and excellent straw strength.

T158. This is a take-anywhere, do-anything wheat variety with broad adaptation and adult plant resistance to leaf rust and stripe rust. The leaf rust and stripe rust resistance of T158 is holding still this year, and you can see on some of these leaves that the adult plant resistance is working to stop the progression of the stripe rust on T158 leaves here in Wichita.

LCS CoAXium® Varieties in Tonkawa, Oklahoma

Hi, I'm Marla Barnett, wheat breeder for Limagrain Cereal Seeds Central Plains program. I'd like you to take a look at some of our released CoAXium lines in the program. The plots that you'll see in this video are located in Tonkawa, Oklahoma in a field where the pH varies from 5.2 To 5.5. These plots were planted October 15th of 2019, which was right on time. They have experienced a few freeze events, so in the video in some of the early maturing lines you'll see, you might see a few white heads out there. And that's because of the several freeze events that we had at this site, which occurred right around heading on those early maturing lines. The plots have been sprayed with fungicide.

All of the lines in this set have at least two genes of tolerance to the Aggressor® herbicide in the CoAXium Wheat Production System.

LCS Atomic AX is the earliest variety released by Limagrain Cereal Seeds in the CoAXium Wheat Production System. It’s a T153 background, and again has excellent stripe rust resistance. It has tolerance to acid soil. It also has tolerance to Fusarium head blight. It’s a medium coleoptile.

LCS Helix AX is also a T153 background, again, with excellent stripe rust resistance. It's early, but about a day or two later than Atomic. It has stem rust resistance, and the broadest adaptation among CoAXium released lines. It also has a medium-long coleoptile.

Next is LCS Photon AX. It's a T158 background with excellent stripe rust resistance. It's the best grazer in the CoAXium Wheat Production System. It's late to break dormancy, but finishes fast.

LCS Fusion AX is the first line released by Limagrain Cereal Seeds and the CoAXium Wheat Production System. It's medium maturity, it can get a bit tall, it's susceptible to leaf rust, stripe rust, stem rust and Fusarium head blight. A fungicide is recommended to be applied to protect its test weight. LCS Fusion AX does have tolerance to wheat streak mosaic virus.
