PlainsGold Avery

The newest release from PlainsGold, Avery, comes from a doubled haploid-derived line of a cross of TAM 112 and Byrd. Similar to Byrd in drought tolerance and other agronomic characteristics and with better water absorption, this higher yielding variety is sure to be a go-to variety. Testing has shown that this is slightly later at heading than Byrd aiding in freeze avoidance at some locations.
