WB9707 Hard Red Spring Wheat

WB9707, a Hard Red Spring wheat, offers growers a medium-late maturing variety with excellent yield potential and standability. WB9707 is suited for both dryland and irrigated acres and serves as an excellent companion variety to WB9668.

‎Key Strengths

WB9707 possesses excellent yield potential and standability, excellent protein content, excellent milling, and baking quality, excellent straw strength, and very good resistance to yellow (stripe) rust.

"WB9707 was in four of my large-variety strip trials (in southern Idaho and Montana) in 2019. It looked really good all season long with big heads and kernels that really got your attention. It’s a high-protein, high-yield combination."

"We’re in a very competitive protein market, where WB9668 really gets people’s attention with its consistently high protein. WB9707 has shown that it can compete with WB9668, if not beat it for both yield and protein.."
