Seedworld for February 17, 2022 — Wheat growers of the Pacific Northwest have been hearing about the CoAXium Wheat Production System at industry meetings and field days for the past four years. Aggressor herbicide’s effectiveness at controlling grassy weeds was clearly demonstrated and excitement for CoAXium was high, but varieties were limited. Only hard red winter wheat lines in a predominately soft white winter wheat market left growers asking, “When will the soft whites be ready?”
The answer? NOW. Limagrain Cereal Seeds (LCS) is pleased to announce the launch of five CoAXium soft white winter wheats and one new hard red winter wheat, all with PNW-adapted pedigrees. Starting this growing season, farmers will have more options than ever to defend their fields against grassy weeds.
