PlainsGold Avery

Avery is a 2015 release derived from a cross between TAM 112 and Byrd. Avery is similar to Byrd in drought tolerance and other agronomic characteristics, with slightly later maturity, larger kernel size and better water absorption. Avery is resistant to greenbug, and also contains a gene for wheat curl mite resistance, which provided very effective tolerance to Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus in 2017.
