New winter wheat variety outperforms in trials

A new winter wheat variety available for the first time in 2017 has out yielded all other varieties in the Ontario Cereal Crops Committee intensive trials in the last two years.

DS572SRW from Dow Seeds is a medium-tall awned soft red winter wheat variety that delivered an average of 110% yield index over two years and 111% in 2016, under intense management. The trials are a summary of results in areas 1 and 2, where 85% of winter wheat is grown in the province.

Tom Claeys, Product Manager at Dow Seeds says, “DS572SRW is an exciting new variety with good overall disease tolerance with above average yields. Farmers across Ontario will appreciate its excellent winter survival and exceptional test weight.”

DS572SRW can be purchased through the Dow Seeds Seed Partner network. Variety results can be viewed at
