LCS Wizard is a medium maturity HRW wheat targeted for the Central and Southern Plains and irrigated production in the High Plains. It has exceptional straw strength, which makes it a good candidate for high input management. LCS Wizard is medium height with a medium coleoptile. Yield data from LCS Wizard in the past three seasons was superb across many varied environments, proving its broad adaption and yield stability. LCS Wizard is late in producing a first hollow stem, allowing it to be utilized as a dual-purpose wheat in grazing situations. Tolerance to both Hessian fly and barley yellow dwarf virus are two key traits that not many products currently on the market can offer. LCS Wizard is also tolerant to soil-borne mosaic virus.
