Primary area of Adaptation for Denali Wheat

Denali, is a hard red winter wheat, and was released based on its superior grain yield under non-irrigated and irrigated production conditions across the High Plains region, its high test weight, and its resistance to stripe rust. While TAM 111 is a tough wheat to beat, this one may be the one to do it. It is extremely tolerant of drought conditions and shattering. It is resistant to Hessian fly and is a medium tall wheat, even in drought conditions.
