NWG creates AOSCA certified varieties bred for high yield and optimized for mechanical harvestability, as well as for various market traits. We regularly enter trials across the US and other countries, to investigate where certain genetics perform best, and as third party validation on the performance of our seed. See our most recent press release on the performance of our variety RELY in University of Kentucky’s trials.  Currently NWG is offering licensing for NWG ELITETM.
