The wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) cultivar CD 117 was obtained by the Cooperativa Central de Pesquisa Agrícola as a result of crossing the PF 87373 and OC 938 genotypes. One selected line from generation F6 originated the referred cultivar. After two years of preliminary assays and five years of value of cultivation and use trials, cultivar CD 117 was recommended for cultivation in the states of Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, Paraná, São Paulo, Mato Grosso do Sul, Mato Grosso, Goiás, and Minas Gerais and in the Distrito Federal, Brazil. This wheat cultivar has wide adaptation, high industrial quality and a mean grain yield of 3,877 kg ha-1, which exceeds the control cultivar mean yields in 6.3%.
