Soft Wheat Options
We have always sold a lot of soft wheat and most of our sales are used for the silage market. Some is grown for milling and a small amount for ethanol when close to those facilities. Distilling/malting is also bigger use than I would have guessed. If growing a SWSW or SWSP for the first time, make sure your AFSC crop insurance enrolment has these classes selected or you do not have insurance!
Sadash VB Soft Wheat SWSW - S rating for FHB, stands well, industry standard soft wheat seeming to be making a comeback in the market.
Paramount VB Soft Wheat SWSW - S rating for FHB, sales seem to be switching back to AC Sadash VB
Awesome VB Soft GP Wheat SWSP - I rating for FHB, highest yielding spring wheat registered, great for forage, feed, ethanol, can be taller vs the others.
We do not sell a lot of CPS wheat unless new varieties come out or the CPS market is above other markets. CWRS yields have grown in recent years, and soft wheats have increased in feed use making CPS wheat not as attractive in our local area. We do have AAC Penhold CPS wheat available now, and one to watch for in a few years is a new one called AAC Westlock (traditional type of CPS)
