Summary

Showdown, a new wheat variety, features high yield potential and is Hessian-fly resistant. It performs well statewide as well as thrives in a broad range of environmental conditions, including from well-watered to mildly drought stressed.

Features a relatively high yield ceiling in a grain-only production system, and it offers complete adaptation to a dual-purpose management system with good canopy closure at adequate seeding density, outstanding forage regeneration and grazing recovery (related to its more prostrate growth habit), and Hessian fly resistance. It will be marketed under the GrazenGrain® brand. Test weight is in the Endurance range, and certainly not as high as Doublestop CL Plus. Disease resistance is broad and strong, with the possible exception of leaf rust when present before heading at the level observed in 2017. Adaptation is very wide, extending from the Rolling Plains of Texas to central Kansas, including the Oklahoma panhandle. Its parentage includes an OK Bullet sister and an AgriPro experimental line.
