Technical Abstract: 'Yellowstone' hard red winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was developed by the Montana Agricultural Experiment Station and released in September 2005. Yellowstone was released for its high yield potential and broad adaptation to Montana winter wheat production environments. Yellowstone was named in commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The Yellowstone River of MT, spanning the state from the continental divide near Yellowstone Park to its confluence with the Missouri River in western North Dakota, was explored in 1806 by William Clark during the return voyage of the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
