CAMACHO-CASAS, Miguel Alfonso et al. Banámichi C2004, new durum wheat cultivar. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2010, vol.1, n.2, pp.263-268. ISSN 2007-0934.
A new variety of durum wheat, Banámichi C2004, was developed for the wheat-producing areas in northwestern Mexico. This variety was produced in the Yaqui Valley Experimental Station (CEVY) of the National Forestry, Agriculture and Livestock Research Institute (INIFAP) and registered with the number 1732-TRI- 061-030505-C in the National Seed Inspection and Certification Service (SNICS). Banámichi C2004 is resistant to the new BBG/BN breed of wheat rust (Puccinia triticina Eriksson), and has yields of 5.5 to 6.2 t ha-1 and good grain quality for the export market. Banámichi C2004 surpasses the control Júpare C2001 in a consistent manner, in the protein-producing capacity in the grain as in the content of yellow pigment in the endosperm and in the strength of gluten. Banámichi C2004 can grow in the autumn-winter cycle in the states of Baja California, Baja California Sur, Sinaloa and Sonora.
