Variety Highlights

Resistant to WSMV
Very good drought tolerance
Single gene Clearfield® variety

This Kansas Wheat Alliance variety is a single-gene Clearfield, red wheat with resistance to WSMV (WSM2 gene carrier).

Oakley CL has a medium-long coleoptile, very good shattering resistance, and average straw strength.

In general, Oakley CL has a very strong yield record on dry-land production on the High Plains—it’s a good one for western Kansas—and can do well under irrigation, too. In colder years, it has shown the ability to rebound from cold injury.
