BOTANICAL NAME: Triticum aestivum
DESCRIPTION: We are so honored to be able to offer this
wheat, the product of farmers doing on-the-farm breeding
for disease resistance rather than depending on chemicals.
The mother plants were selected from the survivors of a scab
outbreak by breeder Matt Bolding. Dylan can be planted early
in the spring (soil temps above 40°F). Large seeds on 3 ft
plants. Handles wet soil well.
