One of the advantages Limagrain Cereal Seeds brings to American farmers is access to varieties that have proven themselves in other parts of the world. LCS Colonia is a German Hard Red Winter Wheat (HRWW) variety tested over the past two years by Pacific Northwest (PNW) wheat breeder Jean-Bruno Beaufumé.
“We’ve seen very good results,” Beaufumé said. “LCS Colonia is the top yielder and broadly adapted to our region.” A medium height, medium maturity variety with good winter-hardiness, LCS Colonia has the advantage of “no northern limitation.”
“With a combination of good pest/disease resistance and good dryland performance, we believe this HRWW variety will impress growers across the PNW,” he said. “LCS Colonia has shown excellent test weight as well.”
And because Limagrain Cereal Seeds has access to international seed stock, there will be plenty of seed to offer PNW growers so they can take advantage of LCS Colonia right away, he added.
