Abstract: This publication marks the end of an era; after 30 years, the International Spring Wheat Yield Nursery (ISWYN), flagship of the international yield nurseries, has been discontinued. The ISWYN will be replaced by several yield nurseries, each aimed at specific mega-environments. The ISWYN, the first truly international yield nursery, served as a model for similar nurseries in other cereal crops. It was a source of information on adaptation of spring wheat and a means of distributing germplasm to international programs. Thanks to the ISWYNs, where some wheats have appeared under 13 synonyms, we realized the importance of unique identification of germplasm. This principle has become operational through the International Wheat Information System, which encompasses all data manipulation within the Wheat Program. The discontinuation of ISWYN could be temporary; at some future date a global yield nursery may again be needed as a research tool.
