ALUM

Hard Red Spring Wheat

Alum, a newly released hard red spring wheat from Washington State University, is intended to provide growers with low soil pH and aluminum toxicity; a very solid and broadly adapted hard red spring wheat variety.

Alum has very good adult plant stripe rust resistance, Hessian fly resistance, above average test weight, very good aluminum tolerance, medium plant height with good straw strength, and very good-to-excellent yield potential across the PNW. Alum should be of particular interest to growers in Spokane, eastern Whitman, Columbia, and Walla Walla counties in Washington, and in northern Idaho.
