Jacoby Borstvete

Jacoby Borstvete is a heritage landrace wheat that was introduced to Sweden from Germany, and is still preferred by many Swedish farmers today. It has a good protein content, baking qualities and flavor. All in all, it has proven to be a good and productive wheat. It did show some signs of rust infection late in the season, but came through to maturity with no problems. Given, our spring and early summer here in Northern Indiana has been so abnormally dry, I expected as much. In a normal, wet, Indiana season, this variety would have likely had more severe disease issues. Jacobi Borstvete may be a better candidate for more arid regions than the midwest.
