GALLANT is an older Group 1 milling wheat and is no longer on the Recommended List but is still in demand for its strong gluten quality and its very early maturity.
End-use group: Group 1
Market options: Breadmaking
Soil preference: Suitable for all soil types
Regional positioning: Performs well in all regions
Parentage: (Malacca x Charger) x Xi19
"GALLANT still has a place in the Group 1 sector. Strong protein (gluten) characteristics mean certain millers require GALLANT in their grists (as a necessity) and all millers will continue to purchase as a Group 1. Early maturity leads to a stress free harvest as GALLANT can be in the barn while other Group 1 varieties are still finishing off. Strong HFN adds to harvest security."
