Hilliard Wheat Variety Description

U. S. Variety Protection Applied For

 

Hilliard wheat was developed at VA Tech.  The name was selected in honor of the developer’s mother, Joy A. Hilliard, whose support, altruism, and love of gardening and plants has and continues to provide inspiration to excel.  It is a broadly adapted, high yielding, mid-season, medium height, semi-dwarf soft, red, winter wheat. Plant stem and spike color are green, and its spikes are awned.  In Virginia, head emergence of Hilliard has been most similar to that of Southern States Brand 8412.  It is 3 to 4 days later than “Jamestown”, and 1 day earlier than “Shirley”. Hilliard is resistant to powdery mildew, and moderately resistant to leaf rust.  Hilliard has superior baking quality.
