Green Hammer offers a critical yield protection advantage that could call for lower
input costs. It carries a highly effective level of dual resistance to leaf rust
and stripe rust, thus often neutralizing the positive effect of a fungicide application
based on trials in Oklahoma and Kansas. Protein content has averaged about a point
higher than Gallagher at a similar test weight level. Altogether, Green Hammer is
considered OSU's best offering at this time for combining disease and Hessian fly
resistance, protein content (and protein quality), and test weight into one variety.
Its region of adaptation is centered on southwest, central and north central Oklahoma.
Green Hammer is a progeny of the three-way cross, OK Bullet/TAM 303 sister//Shocker.
Note that TAM 303 was one of the two parents of Bentley.
