A mid-season, awnless wheat, with consistent yields and excellent disease resistance. Moderate resistance to Fusarium Head Blight. A taller stature than most wheats; good standability.

Soil Adaptation Wet – Difficult because wet areas may exacerbate winterkill problems and interfere with harvesting. The crop itself is fairly tolerant, however.

Drought – Fair. Productive during fall and spring, which tends to reduce drought risk.

pH Range –6.0 and above

Forage Management
Later harvest than rye or triticale. Cut at flag leaf stage before head has emerged. Can be grazed once plants reach 6-12 inches.

Grain Management
Follow local university recommendations.
