Gator excels as both a first and second wheat. Gator over the last four years has proven to be a very tough and reliable wheat in many conditions. With its fusarium resistance it has the right characteristics to perform in difficult situations. It has a big bold grain, strong tillering ability giving straw strength to deliver high yields. Gator also performs in dryland situations where it has been proven as hard to beat. With good tillering ability and strong tiller retention, drilling from late March onwards with an intermediate maturity makes Gator a very flexible variety. Gator has strong straw so with a minimal PGR programme it will always stand and lodging will be very rare.
An above average yielding feed wheat with good resistance to stripe rust and fusarium. An outstanding second wheat option and a top performer in dryland situations. Medium height and strong straw. Gator gives the advantage of a wide planting window. Sowing dates range from late March through to July.
Gator has intermediate maturity and is a tough wheat that can handle many challenging conditions and still perform well. Being a son of Oakley, Gator, when grown with a good fungicide programme, will supply a high yield with quality grain in most situations.
