Wheat variety Infinity CL

Infinity CL is a hard red winter wheat cultivar developed cooperatively by the Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station and the USDA-ARS. It is a semi-dwarf with a medium short coleoptile. Infinity CL is a wheat that may be used as a component of the BASF CLEARFIELD Production System with Beyond® herbicide for the selective control of jointed goatgrass, downy brome, and feral rye. Infinity CL was released primarily for its superior adaptation to rainfed wheat production systems in Nebraska and counties in adjacent states. Infinity CL was selected from the cross Windstar//Millennium sib/Above' sib. The overall end-use quality characteristics for Infinity CL should be acceptable to the milling and baking industries. In positioning Infinity CL, it has performed extremely well throughout most of Nebraska and Wyoming in rainfed production systems. Infinity CL is genetically complementary to 2137, Alliance, Goodstreak, Jagger, and Pronghorn.

  • Medium in maturity and has good to very good winter hardiness.
  • Moderately resistant stem, leaf, and stripe rust, but susceptible to Hessian fly and wheat soilborne mosaic virus.
