2014 Preferred wheat varieties ranking
April 2, 2014

The 2014 Washington, Oregon and North Idaho Preferred Wheat Varieties brochure is now available to producers. For the full PDF file, download it here.

Varieties are listed by statistical quality rankings by class. When making a decision between varieties with similar agronomic characteristics and grain yield potential, choose the variety with the higher quality ranking. This will help to increase the overall quality and desirability of Pacific Northwest (PNW) wheat.

Most Desirable (MD)—These varieties generally have high test weights, appropriate protein content (kernel properties), and excellent milling and end-use properties.

Desirable (D)—The kernel, milling, and end-use qualities of these varieties range from good to very good. The quality attributes of these varieties are desirable in international trade.

Acceptable (A)—The kernel, milling and end-use qualities of these varieties range from acceptable to good. Individual varieties may possess minor flaws. The quality attributes of these varieties are acceptable in international trade.

Least Desirable (LD)—One or more critical flaws in quality are present in these varieties. The intrinsic quality of PNW wheat will be improved if these varieties are not planted.
