Crescent AX

Hard Red
Released in 2018, Crescent AX is our flagship CoAXium variety proven to compete with many leading central and high plains HRW varieties from Oklahoma to South Dakota. Crescent AX is broadly adapted, providing excellent yield performance on difficult to manage acres. Crescent AX has early maturity, very good test weight, wheat curl mite resistance, and very good end-use quality. Best suited to be planted later in the fall (perhaps behind Cotton in the south, or later maturing Corn moving north). If you plan to graze, be mindful of first hollow stem and remove cows accordingly. PVP protected, Certified Seed Only, no saved seed allowed. Stewardship Agreement required.
