“We’ve seen WB4792 perform well in wet and dry seasons. It is a variety with a good disease package and very high-yield potential in dryland country, handles the heat and it has good straw strength and very large heads, allowing you to be open with plant populations and still achieve outstanding yields.”
Rick HortonGrower - Kansas

Couple that level of quality with agronomic attributes designed for dryland growers, and you have a new variety that really shined in initial testing.”
Geoff SchulzManager of Seed Operations, Highline Grain Growers, Inc. - Washington
“We planted this new variety in 2019 and placed in the National Wheat Yield Contest by making 201 Bu/A on irrigated fields with it. WB4394 demonstrated a good disease package, 200-bushel yield potential and good straw strength under irrigation.”

What People Are Saying

“We tried to give the WB4699 crop a little extra care because from the beginning, we thought it was going to be something good, so we gave it a little extra fertilizer, and it was the thickest crop of wheat we’ve ever grown. By the time we finished with the 75 acres, it averaged 107.7 Bu/A. We’ve never raised wheat like that on this farm, and we will definitely be planting a lot more of this variety in the next few years.”
Trent PeckGrower - Oklahoma
