HOT ROD WHEAT

#2447 | TRITICUM AESTIVUM

Summary

Hot Rod is a new hard red winter wheat variety developed by Kansas State University and licensed to ACSECO in 2014. It is best adapted to central and eastern Kansas and Oklahoma. Hot Rod was licensed to AGSECO with the stipulation that it could only be marketed as a component of a blend with one or more other varieties. The main concern with Hot Rod is its less than desirable baking quality. Agronomically, Hot Rod is a superior variety. While Hot Rod is rated intermediate on Barley Yellow Dwarf and head scab, it is more resistant than most other commercial varieties. In three years of yield testing, Hot Rod is 10% higher yielding than Everest.
