JOBET, Claudio and HEWSTONE, Cristian. Kumpa-INIA: New winter wheat variety for Southern Chile. Agric. Téc. [online]. 2003, vol.63, n.1, pp. 81-86. ISSN 0365-2807. doi: 10.4067/S0365-28072003000100010.
Kumpa-INIA is a new winter bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) variety derived from the exchange of germplasm between Nordsaat, Germany, and the Instituto de Investigaciones Agropecuarias (INIA) under the agreement with the Trigen Seed Services. It is the result of five years of evaluation under the conditions of Southern Chile. Kumpa-INIA is a semi dwarf, long period wheat, with good resistance to stripe rust and powdery mildew, moderately resistant to leaf rust and septoria leaf blotch. Its mean yield for five seasons varied between 4.74 and 15.26 t ha-1 in three locations in the southern zone. It has good quality for baking, with a good sedimentation value (38.5) and good bread volume (685 cm3).
