ORCF-102 also has more acreage planted in than any other variety in Oregon and Washington. ORCF-102 is best adapted to dryland and irrigated wheat-growing regions in northeast Oregon and southeast Washington. ORCF-102 is a cross between Madsen, FS-4, and Wheatherford. It is an awned, medium-tall stature, medium maturity variety with superior straw strength proven performance, and is broadly adapted. ORCF-102 is resistant to strawbreaker footrot, and is also tolerant to Cephaloporium stripe and Fusarium crown rot.

Features & Benefits
Background of Invention
ORCF-102 was developed in cooperation with BASF Corporation and USDA-ARS. ORCF-102 is a traditionally bred, (not genetically modified) wheat variety that carries an altered form of the acetolactate synthase enzyme. When ORCF-102 is used in combination with Beyond® or Clearmax® at labeled rates. CLEARFIELD® technology provides growers with an effective tool for control of several grassy weeds. The altered enzyme is not affected by imazamox, the active ingredient in Beyond® herbicide and one of the active ingredients in Clearmax® herbicide.
