WS175 is a hard white spring wheat line with the parentage Snowbird/Sumai3 with a high level of resistance to Fusarium head blight (FHB) that was developed using marker-assisted selection. WS175 contains haplotypes similar to Sumai3 at the loci previously associated with FHB resistance, located on chromosomes 3B, 5A, and 6B. WS175 has similar maturity and protein content, but has lower grain yield, compared to Snowbird. The combination of white seed coat colour and very high level of FHB resistance will make WS175 a valuable parent for the improvement of FHB resistance in white spring wheat breeding programs.
