TAM 112 WHEAT is a hard red winter wheat with a very high grain and forage yield and good milling and baking characteristics. It is widely adapted and had a superior grain yield in regional trials from central Texas to southern Nebraska in both irrigated and rainfed environments. It is resistant to greenbugs, possessing the same resistance genes as TAM 110. Although it is resistant to the prevalent races of leaf rust, new races which are virulent on Lr 41 (the gene present in TAM 112) are present in Texas and may increase in prevalence. It is susceptible to stripe rust. Due to its limited rust resistance, TAM 112 is recommended for the High Plains, but does perform well in other areas in the absence of rust pressure. TAM 112 has been exclusively licensed and application for Plant Variety Protection has been granted.
