DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. – As wheat growers begin to make planting decisions for the winter wheat season, Syngenta is offering a new varietal option, AP Exceed. This new wheat variety helps Pacific Northwest wheat growers increase yield potential and resist common diseases this winter wheat planting season.
“Showing a high response to inputs and excellent winter hardiness, AP Exceed topped multiple Syngenta AgriPro trials,” says Marshall Clinesmith, Agripro hybrid wheat breeding lead. “This variety has exceptional potential under irrigation and in higher rainfall regions, making it a solid addition to wheat growers in the Pacific Northwest and Idaho.”
AP Exceed is an early maturity variety that allows planting flexibility, and good seeding vigor starts the crop off strong. The variety is medium to short in height with good straw strength. It has strong yield potential through winter hardiness.
“With more early-season vigor, the fields we planted with AP Exceed out-yielded other varieties on my farm and also yielded the historical highest on two different fields,” says Andy Hooley, a wheat grower from Filer, Idaho.
“This new variety offers growers the opportunity to maximize their yield this season,” says Clinesmith.
Backed by more than 50 years of wheat-breeding expertise, AgriPro brand wheat varieties are consistently top performers that offer best-in-class disease packages, leading agronomics and outstanding yield potential.
