'Barlow' Hard Red Spring Wheat (RFP-165)


'Barlow' was developed by the Hard Red Spring Wheat Breeding Program at North Dakota State University and released by the North Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station in the spring of 2009.

'Barlow' has high grain yield better or at least equal to 'Glenn', 'Alsen', and 'Reeder'. It tends to perform relatively well in Central and Western ND but still very competitive in Eastern regions of the State. It has medium straw strength. 'Barlow' is a conventional to semi-dwarf height variety, with an early to medium early maturity. 'Barlow' has high water absorption and test weight. Overall, it has excellent milling and baking qualities better than 'Reeder' and 'Faller' and similar to 'Alsen' and other common NDSU cultivars. 

'Barlow' possesses an excellent diseases resistances package. It is moderate resistant / moderate susceptible to scab. It is resistant to Leaf and stem rust, and both Septorias and Race 3 of Tan Spot.

To help ensure genetic purity 'Barlow' is protected by PVPA Title V (certificate No. 200900342) and must be sold as a class of certified seed.
