CDC Ptarmigan

CDC Ptarmigan is a soft white winter wheat originally released in Canada in 1999. The Crop Development Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan developed the winter wheat. Ptarmigan was designed with a strong straw and high yield. CDC Ptarmigan is also a high starch crop that offers high tonnes of starch per acre.
