The wheat cultivar, Haider-2000, was first tested at CCRI, Pirsabak in 1996-97 in a nursery of 282 lines. The lines which showed resistance to stripe and leaf rust and gave higher yields were advanced to preliminary yield trials for two years at CCRI. As the ability of the lines regarding grain yield and disease reaction were confirmed, the lines were tested at different locations in the province in the year 1999-2000. As of its comparative advantage over checks the line was evaluated in National Uniform wheat Yield trials during 2000-01 and 2001-02 . Haider-2000 has earned 5th position in NUWYT trials (2000-2001, RF) on national as well as provincial level. In 2001-2002 Haider-2000 has achieved 3rd position in national trials and 2nd position in provincial trials NUWYT(RF). Its chapati quality is excellent. The variety was approved by the Provincial Seed Council in 2000 and by VEC (Variety Evaluation Committee) Islamabad in 2002 for rainfed areas of NWFP, for normal sowing.
