It has a very adequate disease package, but the thing that really gets you is that it has extremely high yield potential, it has a large, fertile head type that means it can put out a lot of large berries per head and a long head type that’s very strong. It appeals visually to farmers. When I first saw the variety, it jumped out at me.

Title

See the WestBred growers honored in this year's National Wheat Yield Contest.

Title

With new seed comes new yield potential. See what the 2019 varieties can offer your wheat fields.

So, the high yield potential, the very adequate test weight, it has above average quality – it’s average protein but the bake quality is quite good. Those three things together make for a variety that gives you potential to yield, potential for some protein, potential for some end-use premiums possibly, plus a solid agronomic package so you don’t have to be very worried about managing for diseases.
