Skydance will be licensed as a premium-quality wheat variety for highly desirable dual functionality in bread and tortilla manufacturing. Its kernel size is similar to Gallagher, and test weight is at least one pound higher than Gallagher.  Protein levels exceed Gallagher by about one-half point. Skydance also has been found to tolerate suboptimal nitrogen availability and appears to be suited for certified organic production in its normal area of adaptation, which includes southwest and central OK, but extending, albeit at greater risk, into northern OK. Its disease package is outstanding, lacking only in barley yellow dwarf resistance (moderately susceptible). Skydance's parentage includes a Fannin sister and Billings.
