Effective spring wheat production starts with selecting the right variety—and in a dynamic environment like the Northern Plains, growers understand the importance of choice when it comes to deciding which seed varieties to plant. That’s why Syngenta has added AP Murdock to its proven portfolio of AgriPro brand wheat. A hard red spring wheat variety offering excellent yield potential and good protein, AP Murdock is now available to purchase for the 2021 planting season.

A versatile grain, hard red spring wheat is widely produced and in high demand across North America, especially in the Northern Plains. To ensure consistent performance in conditions specific to this area, new AgriPro variety AP Murdock has undergone rigorous testing since it was first developed.
