A New Variety Gives Growers More Options This Upcoming Season

WB6211CLP variety provides spring wheat growers a new option for top performance this upcoming season.

Growers in the Pacific Northwest combat pest, weed and disease pressures in their wheat fields, with Hessian fly and yellow (stripe) rust being some of the most problematic. WB6211CLP variety from WestBred® for the soft white spring market is designed to help defend against major pests and diseases while providing increased yield potential.

Built Strong to Defeat Problematic Pests, Weeds and Diseases

WB6211CLP variety is designed with Clearfield® Plus technology to provide broad-spectrum grass and broadleaf weed control, leading to cleaner fields and increased yield potential. Along with its high-performing weed control, WB6211CLP variety is resistant to troublesome pests and disease.

Hessian fly, a native problem to the Pacific Northwest, is an annual issue growers face. With weather playing a large role in infestation, planting resistant varieties gives growers a good chance to reduce the pest’s impact on yield. Heavy infestations of Hessian flies can result in significant yield loss. WB6211CLP variety excels in Hessian fly resistance in field studies.

WB6211CLP variety is built to withstand tough disease pressure, such as stripe rust and powdery mildew. Stripe rust is problematic in the Northwest and Montana regions by hurting yield and profit potential. Planting WB6211CLP variety can provide growers peace of mind with excellent disease resistance.

“Resistance to stripe rust and Hessian flies makes WB6211CLP an ideal variety for the PNW region,” said Nathan Clemens, Regional Business Manager — PNW for Bayer Crop Science.“ For spring wheat growers in the Northwest, WB6211CLP variety is a strong performer in yield potential, a solid replacement for WB-1035CL+ and is adaptable in both dryland and irrigated areas.”

After a long season of pests, weeds and diseases, WB6211CLP variety works to give growers not only strong yield potential, but also good end-use quality.

“For the PNW wheat industry, it’s important to wheat growers to have quality varieties that stand up to our tough growing conditions,” said Clemens. “WestBred understands grower needs and is focused on delivering varieties that produce high yield potential and good end-use quality. WB6211CLP variety has the potential to exceed standards for excellence in the PNW wheat region.”
