Graham and new numbered lines KWW72 and KWW78 were the top performing feed wheat cultivars under both irrigated and dryland conditions in Canterbury. These cultivars, along with CRWT233, were also top performers in Southland.

A number of new milling wheat lines are performing well. CRWT218 is a premium grade milling wheat yielding around 8% higher than Conquest in its third year of trials.

CRWT235 is a medium grade milling wheat and SFR86-073 a gristing wheat, both performing well in their first season of CPT trials.

FAR says it welcomes any queries or suggestions to further improve these booklets. Alternatively, if any additional information is required that has not been included please contact the organisation.
