Kevin Rudd: rust-proof, high-yielding and red?
...and while there's mention of Kevin Rudd and the scandalous behaviour of AWB, Miss Eagle has uncovered a little known fact. AWB has listed an interesting variety of wheat with the name of Rudd. In the great and historic tradition of Australian wheat, it has great resistance to rust and is high yielding. It is a red feed quality grain and a dual purpose winter wheat for grazing as well as grain production. It is suitable for the high rainfall regions of VIC, TAS, NSW, QLD, SA, WA which means it should steer clear of dryland marginals.
