WestBred’s WB4458 is a medium maturity, medium height wheat with excellent yield records. It has good staygreen capability, acid soil tolerance, and grazing potential. WB4458 is very drought tolerant and is widely adapted. It tends to have large seed and since it is not a high tillering variety, planting rates should be monitored. WB4458 has a very good shattering reputation and excellent straw strength. In a year of heavy disease pressure, it may need a fungicide to protect its yield potential.
PVPA Status: Protected, must be sold only as a class of certified seed.
