Dual was co-developed in Indiana at Purdue University with the USDA in the mid-1950s as a soft red winter wheat cultivar resistant to Hessian fly. Its resistance allows seeding before the eastern fly-free date which allows its dual use as a pasture variety and as a grain crop. Medium lax fusiform spikes thresh easily by hand. Grains are pleasingly plump.

 

We had minor lodging in 2021 during June's excessive rain and high winds.
