Rock Solid Returns in the West

Hard Red Spring
Area of Primary Adaptation
  • Specifically developed for the western wheat acre
  • High revenue per acre with a balance between yield and protein
  • Growth habit that fills in wider rows
  • Very good foliar disease tolerance and very good fusarium head blight tolerance
  • Hessian fly tolerance, an occasionally important challenge in the West

These agronomic assessments are made by Syngenta scientists and reflect each variety's relative performance within these characteristics prior to and during the 2017 crop year. Specific conditions may cause variations within those characteristics. These relative protection values are based on current pest and disease populations. These have been known to shift periodically and may cause changes in specific evaluations. Resistance to many other diseases and pests is sensitive to environmental conditions, plant development stages and the presence and intensity of other diseases which may result in specific evaluation inconsistencies. This chart is updated annually to reflect the most current trends.
