Plant Sci. 90: 347-352. Superb is a hard red spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) adapted to the wheat-growing regions of the Canadian prairies, and meets the end-use quality specifications of the Canada Western Hard Red Spring wheat class. Superb was evaluated in the Central Bread Wheat Cooperative Registration Test in 1997, 1998 and 1999. Superb yielded significantly more than the cultivars Neepawa, Roblin, AC Majestic, and 5500HR and slightly more than McKenzie. Superb was resistant to leaf and stem rust. Its disease reaction was "intermediate" to loose smut and common root rot, and moderately resistant to common bunt. Leaf spot reaction of Superb was similar to the checks and its reaction to Fusarium head blight was intermediate.
