It originated from a cross made in 1995 at the University of Georgia’s Agricultural Experiment Station in Plains GA. Its pedigree includes GA 881130 and Gore. Agronomic evaluations of AGS 2010 were conducted from 2003 through 2005 in the Small Grain State Performance Trials for Georgia. It was also evaluated in the 2004 Uniform Southern Wheat Nursery and in multi southern-state performance trials.
