HARD AMBER DURUM
Available for Spring 2019
TCG-Bright produces high quality durum grain with exceptional color, and hard vitreous kernel percentages. Yield has been excellent from Minot ND on into MT. TCG-Bright is a quality companion variety to the hardy all purpose durum variety VT Peak.
HISTORY of our DURUM BREEDING: We have a long association dating back to the Dakota Growers Pasta (DGP) breeding project (1996-2012); Brad Miller was the agronomist, I was the breeder for WestBred, and the late Jim Quick joined, breeding directly for DGP. A number of outstanding varieties were released during these years. WestBred released Primo D’oro, Grande Doro, Wales, and Westhope. DGP released DG Star, DG Max and VT Peak. These varieties were a unique combination of Desert Durum and NDSU releases. The result was generally good standing, high yielding varieties, with improved scab resistance and weathering resistance coupled with timely drydown. VT Peak is a culmination of that background and is sold by Lawson and Mark as a CPS of Canada product. Our new project is a cooperative venture with TCG, CPS of Canada, Northern Seed LLC of Bozeman MT, and our 2 Durum Associates. Greg Fox, 4/16
