Syngenta introduces a ‘legend in the making’ with latest AgriPro® brand winter wheat variety for Plains market


​​​​​​​DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., USA, Sept. 4, 2019
– The harsh conditions of the western High Plains are no match for the latest winter wheat variety from Syngenta. AgriPro® brand SY Legend CL2, a hard red winter wheat, was bred to deliver consistent yields in tough environments.

The region can experience wide winter temperature swings and drought conditions. SY Legend CL2 has shown to be effective in helping growers manage both of these challenges, offering a high level of drought tolerance and winter hardiness.

The medium-maturity variety also offers excellent leaf disease tolerance, especially important as the western High Plains serves as the disease pathway from Texas to the Northern Plains. Extended green leaf duration allows SY Legend CL2 to maximize grain fill and deliver excellent test weight.

“SY Legend CL2 is the latest example of the strong-performing varieties growers have come to expect from AgriPro brand wheat,” said Greg McCormack, Syngenta key account manager for the Plains region. “Disease, drought and winter weather are common concerns for wheat growers across the High Plains. SY Legend CL2 is showing strength in each of these areas and is even demonstrating better disease tolerance than Brawl CL Plus. We are excited to continue delivering varieties that address the needs of our growers year after year.”

Backed by more than 50 years of wheat breeding expertise, AgriPro wheat varieties are consistent top performers. AgriPro wheat varieties deliver reliable performance, offering best-in-class disease packages, leading agronomics and outstanding yields.
