Khapli Emmer Wheat

Khapli Emmer wheat is heritage cultivar entered into the USDA NPGS in 1908. This variety was collected in Madhya Pradesh India. I obtained my initial seed from the late Anpetu Ohainkesni’s seed collection. It exhibited a lot of diversity of grain height for a cultivar. The overall grain quality was good with some minor fusarium (FHB) present.

This is a spring planted emmer wheat (hulled) that had some minor lodging issues with the lower tillers during periods of heavy summer rainfall.
