FIGUEROA-LOPEZ, Pedro et al. CIRNO C2008, new wheat variety perfomance with high potential yield for the State of Sonora. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2010, vol.1, n.5, pp. 739-744. ISSN 2007-0934.
Commercial cultivar CIRNO C2008 was developed at the Norman E. Borlaug Experimental Station through a collaborative project between INIFAP and CIMMYT, for wheat producing areas in northwest Mexico. The pedigree and selection history are SOOTY-9/RASCON-37//CAMAYO and CGS02Y00004S-2F1-6Y-0B-1Y-0B. CIRNO C2008 has the registration 2146-TRI-086-141008/C in the catalogue of cultivars feasible for registration. This cultivar is spring-type, resistant to leaf rust (Puccinia triticina), with an average experimental yield of 5.6 and 6.3 t ha-1 with two and three complementary irrigations, respectively, in four planting dates, being superior to control cultivar Júpare C2001. CIRNO C2008 consistently showed grain yield (average 14.9%) higher than control cultivar; therefore, this new cultivar represents an option of durum wheat for farmers in the states of Baja California, Baja California Sur, Sinaloa, and Sonora.
