‘MN-Torgy’ wheat is the newest variety from the University of Minnesota’s hard red spring wheat breeding program. It is named in honor of Dave Torgerson, the former Executive Director of the Minnesota Wheat Research and Promotion Council and the Minnesota Association of Wheat Growers.
MN-Torgy features a good combination of yield, protein, straw strength and disease resistance.
Jim Anderson, University of Minnesota wheat breeder, Department of Agronomy and Plant Genetics, says: “MN-Torgy has shown its promise to perform well across the wheat growing region and its straw strength is better than most higher yielding varieties.”
