Origin & Breeding History: 'SG1010' (experimental designation OT06-17 and X4680-030-B-B) originated from the cross Chikala/X3555-B-B-15-5 where X3555-B-B-15-5 resulted from the cross X390-103-1/H24/2/X947-24-B-B-B-55 (X2636-3-1-2)/3/OT85-8BR-92-small-seeded-selection-from-TNS. The final cross occurred in 2000 in Ottawa, Ontario. The F2 population was grown in a field in 2001 and single plants were selected. F3 progeny rows were selected and bulked for further testing in an early generation testing breeding scheme. OT06-17 was tested at Ottawa in 2003 and in multiple location trials since 2004. Selection criteria included seed size, maturity and agronomic characteristics.

Tests & Trials: Trials were conducted during the 2010 and 2011 growing seasons at the Agriculture Agri-Food Canada, Eastern Cereal and Oilseeds Research Centre in Ottawa, Ontario. Plots consisted of 4 rows with a row length of 5 meters and a row spacing of 40cm. There were 4 replicates.
