LCS Atomic AX is a new hard red winter wheat (HRWW) CoAXium® variety headed into the marketplace. It is an early maturing variety with a short plant type and is a few days earlier than LCS Helix AX. LCS Atomic AX is going to be known for how well it handles heat and drought conditions. This variety has quick emergence and has a strong disease package. LCS Atomic AX will provide yield stability during the dry years, while still reaching top-end yields in more favorable conditions. LCS Atomic AX is resistant to Aggressor® brand herbicides, making it an excellent tool to clean up fields with Bromus species, feral rye, cereal rye, jointed goatgrass, wild oats and volunteer cereals.
