Soft White Winter Wheat

As the first released cultivar in an OSU and Limagrain collaboration, Norwest Duet comes with high expectations. Combining the plant type and yield potential of Xerpha with the stripe rust resistance and end-use quality of Skiles, Norwest Duet is a touchstone for success.


  •  Excellent resistance to stripe rust
  • Moderately resistant to Cephalosporium stripe
  • Exceptional winter hardiness
