VARIETY TYPE: 1529 BEARDLESS
Beardless wheat, of course, is popular among grazers and wheat hay producers as the beards, or awns, are largely absent, and so potential issues with awns getting caught in livestock gums and throats, or causing eye irritation are minimized. Some beardless wheats are “awnletted” which means they may have short awns of about ½”, but these do not generally cause problems with feeding
Our beardless wheat is a durable and adaptive wheat option for your land. This native hay is an excellent forage option for livestock and wildlife, making nutritious feed or grazing crops. With its drought tolerance and extensive root systems- this plant is also ideal for reclamation and erosion control.
