PEDRO

Milling wheat (BQG 4) - beardless wheat

The tried-and-tested PEDRO has been producing constant and stable yields for many years. PEDRO is very tolerant of spring drought, but is also able to manage ideal precipitation distributions and the consequential very high yields. Another advantage of PEDRO is its flexibility regarding its sowing time. As a single-head-type with good Fusarium tolerance, PEDRO is capable of cultivation in areas of late corn harvests. Just like SIEGFRIED and RGT AKTION, PEDRO has a high tolerance of yellow rust.
