New soft white winter wheat for Washington
It's here, and poised to set a new standard for soft white winter wheat performance. Puma (WA8134), a high-performing wheat variety for intermediate and high rainfall production areas is now available for 2013. Built on decades of cutting-edge research, plant breeding and marker assisted selection technologies, Puma sets a new standard for high-yielding, high quality, disease-resistant wheat varieties.
Growers currently using Madsen, Brundage 96, WB-528, Xerpha, and Tubbs 06 can expect better performance in the most meaningful traits, including superior adult plant resistance to stripe rust; resistance to strawbreaker foot rot; tolerance to Cephalosporium stripe; moderate resistance to SBWMV; excellent agronomic performance; and a "most desirable" quality rating. Puma also tolerates low pH soils.
