Java Wheat

We first grew Java wheat in the Spring of 2017, from archived seed received from the USDA germplasm bank.  I was very impressed with the fast germination and growth, which is consistent with historical descriptions of this variety.  In 2019, the most challenging year we have experienced, Java wheat was the healthiest wheat in our field.  JB Clark, writing in the 'teens of the 20th Century, says it was probably the oldest Spring wheat being grown at that time.  We will continue to grow out our Java and make it available if the flour is of good quality.  Earliest availabiity will be after the harvest of 2021.
