You're Playing the Wheat Game

Your first decision is which wheat variety to plant.

No one variety does well under all conditions, so you'll have to gamble.

Select one of these three buttons:

Jagger

  - doesn't withstand leaf rust disease well

 

2137  - fights mosaic disease; only average resistance to leaf rust

 

Karl

 - resists mosaic, but not leaf rust

 

Note: Leaf rust and mosaic are just two of many diseases that hurt wheat plants.
