August 26, 2014 – PlainsGold® announces the launch of its redesigned U.S. website. The site now features a variety selection tool, advanced dealer search options and a “responsive design” that automatically adjusts the site for smartphone, tablet or computer viewing.
The newly-designed website is at www.plainsgold.com. This is the same site address, although the look and content are totally revamped.
“These improvements mean the PlainsGold website will make decisions easier and clearer for High Plains wheat farmers,’ says Darrell Hanavan, executive director of the Colorado Wheat Research Foundation (CWRF).
The new variety search feature helps wheat farmers find varieties based on characteristics such as drought tolerance, test weight, straw strength, maturity and disease resistance. Farmers can use the site to find a seed grower/dealer by state, PlainsGold® variety, and distance from their farm location.
The latest information on wheat genetics and performance trial results continues to be available at PlainsGold.com, along with news and publications, events, and details on the CWRF Ardent Mills Ultragrain® Premium Program.
The PlainsGold brand was introduced in 2012, yet its winter wheat varieties are some of the most well-known and innovative available today in the High Plains. The PlainsGold brand is owned by CWRF. Royalties from the sale of PlainsGold seed support public wheat breeding at Colorado State University. This further enhances the funding provided by the wheat assessment paid by all Colorado winter wheat farmers.
