LEXINGTON

Great Winter Survival
Medium Height with Good Standability
Great Protein Content

Durable and Productive

 LEXINGTON is a showcase wheat.  It is very quick to emerge in the fall.  The quick emergence gives it an edge in stressful conditions and creates a strong start.  It continues with a beautiful deep lush crop canopy.  It has competitive yields with a very strong functional profile.  The seed provides a very plump sample with large kernels. It is an awned variety, and will also provide high volumes of straw.

Growing Areas

For many years Princeton has been our gold standard for durability and survivability, Lexington is looking to change that.  Lexington seems to withstand the stresses of later planting or variable soils better than many other varieties.  Lexington can grow well in most regions of Ontario, but we are expecting strongest performance in Area 2 North, Area 3 and Area 5.
