SS 8500 Brand Wheat Description

U. S. Patented Variety

SS 8500 Brand (Variety WB249) is a medium-late maturity, soft red winter wheat that has consistent yield across a wide geography.  Straw strength is very good and a broad spectrum of disease resistance helps protect and provide the consistent yields and test weights.  It has excellent winter survival and is recommended for environments in the mid-south, east coast, and south, where it does well in both standard management practices and high yield environments. SS 8500 has excellent Leaf Rust resistance, very good resistance to Powdery Mildew, Strip Rust, and Soil-Borne Mosaic Virus.
