Winter wheat varieties recommended for South Dakota

Agriculture.com Staff 08/29/2006 @ 3:35pm

South Dakota State University has recommended winter wheat varieties Alice, Darrell, Expedition, Harding, Jagalene, Millennium, Wendy and Wesley as the top performers in different parts of South Dakota.

Two of those varieties -- Alice and Wendy -- are white winter wheat varieties.

South Dakota State University Extension West River agronomist Thandiwe Nleya says local Extension agronomy educators have more detailed information about which varieties would be well-adapted to specific counties, and where it's recommended to plant certain varieties into protective cover.

In general, Jagalene, Wendy and Wesley are adapted to crop adaptation areas west of the Missouri River. Alice, Expedition and Millennium are well-suited to crop adaptation areas from about the James River Valley west. The variety Darrell is suited to the entire state of South Dakota. Harding is suited to northwestern South Dakota, as well as to all of eastern South Dakota except for the southeastern corner.

Agronomists with SDSU have found the varieties Alliance, Arapahoe, Wahoo, Hatcher and Overland acceptable or promising. Consult your county Extension agronomy educator for more details.
