OSU releases new wheat variety
From Kurtis Hair
OK Corral, a new beardless wheat variety has been released by Oklahoma State University’s Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources.
The variety will introduce greater versatility to farming and ranching operations while ensuring a high-quality crop through the end of the supply chain. It is highly recommended by OSU’s Wheat Improvement Team for grain-only, dual-purpose and graze-out or hay production.
“Hessian fly resistance, acid soil tolerance and wide disease resistance, combined with yield potential to allow for grazing and then producing a good grain crop after the cattle are taken off, makes OK Corral a high-quality product that should be attractive to many wheat growers.” – Brett Carver, lead wheat breeder and holder of the OSU Wheat Genetics Chair.
