Origin & Breeding History: 'S05-T6' was developed from the cross 929494/23834 during the winter of 1997-1998 by Syngenta Seeds Canada Inc. in Kauai, Hawaii. The F1 generation was grown in Arva, Ontario in the summer of 1998. The F2 and F3 generations were grown in a winter nursery near Kekaha, Hawaii in 1998-1999. The F3 generation was grown in Arva, Ontario in the summer of 1999. The F4 and F5 generations were grown in a winter nursery. Single F6 plants were selected in the summer of 2000. The progeny of these selections were grown in a single replicate trial in 2001. One of these lines was identified as CL980101 which was selected based on superior agronomic traits. CL980101 was tested in multiple environments in Ontario and the USA in 2002-2005.

Tests & Trials: Tests and trials were conducted during the summer/fall of 2005 and 2006 in Arva, Ontario. Plots consisted of 2 rows per variety with a row spacing of 60 centimeters and a row length of 5 meters. There were 2 replicates arranged in a RCB design.
