Recommended for the North, Hardwicke is the shortest soft wheat on the Recommended List.
Early indications suggest Hardwicke is very resistant to sprouting. With a strong, all-round disease resistance package, including an 8 for yellow rust, Hardwicke will prove popular with the Northern farmer.
Hardwicke was crossed and initially selected by Sejet in Denmark. It’s potential was recognised at KWS as a very short, stiff, clean, high yielding soft feed variety.
