This is an excellent yielding solid stem hard red spring wheat that is resistant to sawfly. It is not immune to sawfly, but the variety seems to stand up much better to sawfly than hollow stemmed spring wheats grown under similar conditions. It remains our best tool in the battle against the sawfly.
AC® Lillian provides resistance to the wheat stem sawfly along with improved grain yield, increased grain protein and better disease resistance compared to AC Abbey, the wheat stem sawfly check variety.
Sawfly resistant, with high protein and good disease resistance package.
