Medina Winter Wheat - OrganicTriticum aestivum Winter annual grain. Up to 4'. Extremely frost hardy. Soft white winter wheat suitable for feed or pastry our. Remember “Funky Cold Medina,” the 1989 hip-hop hit from Tone Loc? Well, this Medina is funkier and better. Like the mysterious substance in the song, Medina wheat is cold (-tolerant) and it’s sure to make everyone like you, but there the resemblance ends. Our Medina has high test weights and low pre- harvest sprouting levels. Cornell University rates it as moderately resistant to scab, mosaic virus and powdery mildew.
Seed at 100–125#/acre, 3–4#/1000 sq ft.
As food grain: Most soft winter wheats have protein levels of 10–11% and make good pastry flours. Also suitable for brewing wheat beers.
As feed grain: Protein approximately equivalent to barley, but with lower fiber content. Wheat is the best whole grain to feed to chickens and an ideal base for finisher and gestation rations for hogs. Highly palatable to ruminants, but should be fed carefully to prevent acidosis. Wheat should not be finely ground before feeding: cracking or soaking is preferable.
