Hard Red Winter (HRW) Wheat is a winter annual grain seeded in the fall
and harvested the following summer. It often yields more than spring
wheat but has lower protein and the grain usually sells for a lower
price. HRW Wheat begins growing right away in the spring and keeps soil
covered during months of high erosion potential. Albert Lea Seed carries
varieties developed by private and University breeding programs that
offer consistent performance and reliable winter hardiness.
