PlainsGold Breck

Released in 2017, Breck is a hard white variety that is included in the CWRF/Ardent Mills Ultragrain® Premium Program. In addition to excellent milling quality and very good baking quality, Breck has low grain polyphenol oxidase (low PPO). Low PPO is a property desired by end users that reduces browning of baked goods, a benefit in whole grain applications. Breck also offers excellent yields, similar to Antero, with excellent test weight, excellent sprouting tolerance and resistance to Stripe Rust.
