Hard Red Spring Wheat

Hard Red Spring (HRS) Wheat used to be confined to Western dryland states but new disease-resistant varieties and improved management techniques have made spring wheat a viable and profitable crop in the Upper Midwest. HRS Wheat is planted early in the spring and yields higher test weight and higher protein grain than Hard Red Winter Wheat. We source high yielding, good standing, and disease resistant varieties from University and private breeding programs to maximize returns for growers in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and the Dakotas.
