The western High Plains can experience wide winter temperature swings and drought conditions. AgriPro brand SY Legend CL2, a new hard red winter wheat variety from Syngenta, has shown to be effective in helping growers manage both of these challenges, offering a high level of drought tolerance and winter hardiness.

The medium-maturity variety also offers excellent leaf disease tolerance, especially important as the western High Plains serves as the disease pathway from Texas to the Northern Plains. Extended green leaf duration allows SY Legend CL2 to maximize grain fill and deliver excellent test weight.

“SY Legend CL2 is the latest example of the strong-performing varieties growers have come to expect from AgriPro brand wheat,” says Greg McCormack, Syngenta key account manager for the Plains region. “Disease, drought and winter weather are common concerns for wheat growers across the High Plains. SY Legend CL2 is showing strength in each of these areas and is even demonstrating better disease tolerance than Brawl CL Plus. We are excited to continue delivering varieties that address the needs of our growers year after year.”

AgriPro has a 50-year history in wheat breeding and its varieties are consistent top performers.
