Be on the Lookout for New Wheat Variety

Pullman--Farmers can look forward to a new wheat variety that can be planted in the fall. 

The hard red wheat variety, which has tentatively been named “Sprinter” for both “spring” and “winter,” will do well in dry areas and irrigated regions, and would expand some cropping system rotations for farmers interested in planting later, according to Capital Press.

Because Sprinter starts growing quicker and is more productive than a typical winter wheat in the spring, it is “potentially a game changer,” said Rich Koenig, Washington State University Extension director.
