It has an above average combination of yield and protein that will be our top-yielding winter wheat. In terms of protein, it has shown that it will be about a half point above where growers need it to be. It brings something to our winter wheat portfolio that is going really well in spring wheat but not winter wheat, the combination of yield and protein.
