VA-258 Wheat Variety Description

VA258 soft red winter wheat line is broadly adapted, high yielding, full-season maturity, and a stand height semi-dwarf.  Spikes and straw are white to creamy in color at maturity, and the tapering spikes are awnletted.  Mature plant is 37 to 38 inches.  On the basis of four independent quality evaluations over four crop years, VA 258 has exhibited milling and baking qualities that are most similar to those of the strong gluten cultivars Featherstone 176 and Jamestown.    It is moderately resistant to Powdery Mildew and moderately resistant to Leaf Rust.
