Origin & Breeding History: 'S26-F9' was developed from the cross 29988 / 37635 made in Arva, Ontario in the summer of 2001. Generations F1-F2 were grown in a winter nursery in Kekaha, Hawaii in the fall of 2001-2002. The F3 was grown in Arva, Ontario in the summer of 2002. The F4 generation were grown in a winter nursery in 2002-2003. The F5 generation was grown in Arva, Ontario in the summer of 2003 where single plants were selected that fall. The progeny of these plants were grown in a single replicate trial in Arva, Ontario in the summer of 2004. One of these lines was identified as 04DL186179 and was selected based on superior agronomic traits and seed with yellow hila and retained for further testing. 04DL186179 was subsequently tested in multiple environments in Ontario and the USA until 2005-2006.

Tests & Trials: Tests and trials were conducted in Arva, Ontario during the years 2007-2009. Plots consisted of 2 rows with a row length of 4 metres and row spacing of 75 cm. There were two replicates.
