Duster Surpasses Endurance as Top Wheat Variety

Duster became the number one wheat variety in Oklahoma for the 2012 crop year, sown on 22.2 percent of wheat seeded acres, according to the Oklahoma Wheat Variety report issued today by the USDA-NASS Oklahoma Field Office. Endurance, at 16.5 percent of wheat seeded acres, dropped to the second most common variety after holding the top position for two years. Both wheat varieties were developed by Oklahoma State University's wheat breeding program. Acres seeded to Jagger continued to decline, amounting to 7.6 percent of the state's wheat sown. NASS summarized wheat variety acres seeded in Oklahoma by state, district and grain shed levels. This survey was conducted by the USDA-NASS Oklahoma Field Office and funded by the Oklahoma Wheat Commission in cooperation with the Department of Plant and Soil Sciences at Oklahoma State University. Results were based on reports from Oklahoma wheat growers.
