Next Generation of an old favourite
Adrianus is an exciting new variety in the C&M Hard Red Winter Wheat lineup. Adrianus poseses genetic heritage close to our current race-horse variety Priesley. This short variety exceeds expectations with great yield, functional quality, and protein scores. Adrianus has excellent tolerance to fusarium headblight and leaf diseases. Adrianus grows with a nice lush and thick vibrant canopy and shows a nice broad flag leaf. A real head turner throughout the countryside.
Adrianus fits well across most soil types, and all regions of Ontario. Adrianus has shown to be durable and resiliant through challenging planting or soil conditions. Also, because of its short plant height and standability, it is a great fit for intensive management.
