Duma GL wheat

 This variety has only about 300 tiller/heads per square meter but reasonable head (ear) size, this photo is 68 days after planting, it has full grain and is only probably 30 days or so from harvest.
This crop was pushed by 30 degree C days and 25 to 30km per hour winds during March, even though it was on a very full profile of moisture the crop bolted and so we have low tiller numbers as the crop just raced into ear.
