This wheat is from: Texas AgriLife Research & Marketed by AGSECO.
Pedigree: TAM 111, TAM 200, Texas & Nebraska experimentals.
This wheat is good for: those who want to graze cattle & still have decent yield to harvest.
NOTE: You’ll want to be very aware to plant this wheat after the Hessian fly date.
TAM 114*, from Texas A&M AgriLife Research, marketed by AGSECO is proving to be very much like TAM 111 with higher yields and resistance to stripe, leaf, and stem rust. It can stand heavy grazing and still produce grain in the spring. TAM-111 ruled for many years, but, TAM 114 may be the new King of the field.
We recommend this wheat for our cattlemen who need to graze cows in the fall. (And with the price of wheat where it is, cattle may be a better investment at this point.)
- Very Good: Drought Tolerance & Test Weight.
- Resistant to: Stripe Rust, Leaf Rust, Stem Rust.
- Moderately Resistant: Powdery Mildew.
- Susceptible to: Scab, Hessian Fly, Wheat Streak Mosaic.
