"CDC Adamant VB looks to be a very promising hard red spring wheat variety. It has high yield (one of the first spring wheats to yield as well as our new durum varieties), sawfly resistance, midge tolerance, good thrashability without risk of shelling and just a nice looking, deep red wheat. Looks like a winner!"
