AgriPro® wheat is introducing a new wheat variety for the Central Plains named in honor of Bob Dole, former state legislator and U.S. senator from the heartland. Developed by Kansas State University, the hard red winter wheat variety Bob Dole will be available for the 2018 season thanks to a public-private partnership between Syngenta and Kansas wheat farmers through the Kansas Wheat Commission and Kansas Wheat Alliance.

The Bob Dole variety will feature a good disease package with leaf and stripe rust tolerance along with fusarium head blight tolerance. Growers can also expect excellent end-use quality, and a good grain and forage yield in the heart of wheat production in Central Kansas and Oklahoma.
