Interpretive Summary: The ‘MDM’ hard white winter wheat was released in 2005 by the Agricultural Research Center of Washington State University (WSU) in cooperation with the USDA-ARS. MDM is a semi dwarf cultivar adapted to the low- to intermediate-rainfall (< 460 mm average annual precipitation) hard white wheat growing regions of Washington. It was released for its high grain yield, disease resistance and excellent quality attributes.

Technical Abstract: ‘MDM’ (J980628, WA007936) hard white winter wheat (HWW) (Triticum aestivum L.) (Reg. No. CV-XXX, PI 634716) was released in 2005 by the Agricultural Research Center of Washington State University (WSU) in cooperation with the USDA-ARS. MDM is a semi dwarf cultivar adapted to the low- to intermediate-rainfall (< 460 mm average annual precipitation) HWW wheat growing regions of Washington. It was released for its high grain yield, disease resistance and excellent quality attributes. MDM is named in honor of Michael Moore (deceased), wheat producer from Kahlotus, WA. Moore was a strong supporter of WSU wheat research and cooperated for many years toward the improvement of winter wheat for the low rainfall areas of Washington State.
