* – Based on 2017-18 Predictive Modeling  ** – Unable to predict for 2017-18

Wheat maturities are described in terms of Growing Degree Units (GDUs) to 50% heading instead of Early/Medium/Late. The lower the number, the “earlier” a variety is for heading. The predictive model for 2017-18 and moving forward uses a base of -2o Celsius as this is the best fit model for predicting heading. The 2016-17 base was 0o Celsius before the model was validated with current data. GDU values will be updated for varieties that were not in this year’s test using the new model.

Each variety name in this table and the linked PDF are hyperlinked. Clicking on the link will take you to the tech sheet or seed guide for that variety, if it exists. This is included in order to provide more characteristic information for each variety. The inclusion of these links does NOT indicate preference for or recommendation of any variety by NCSU.
