The Marvin Wheat

Here is the wheat that Lonnie and Steve grew for Kernels of Hope this year
It was harvested soon after these pictures. The quality was #1 and we will soon know the protein. The protein in wheat like this ranges from about 12.5 % to 15.5%
the more protein the more money ! The variety is Glenn... I think they'll grow it again! It ran over 40 bu per acre on barely any rainfall for the last half of its life! Now it will sustain life in people in North Kivu, Congo...
