Hedge CL+

Clearfield Spring Club Wheat

Hedge CL+ is a JD spring club wheat replacement with two-gene tolerance to Beyond™ herbicide for use in rotation in Clearfield™ production systems in dryland production zones of the Pacific Northwest. It has a yield record superior to JD, with excellent resistance to stripe rust, excellent test weight, high falling numbers, and the most desirable end-use quality. Tolerance to Group II herbicide soil carryover in Pacific Northwest production is of broad importance in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho. Hedge CL+ provides an alternative to WB-1035CL+ and other soft spring wheat varieties and is particularly well-suited to low rainfall production areas where JD is also grown.
