I live in North Idaho, in a region known as the Palouse- one of the largest wheat growing regions in the country. My grandfather farmed 100 acres, usually wheat and peas. I now live on a section of the original farm. The farmland was in CRP for awhile but is now being leased by a local farmer. He has grown wheat, peas, and garbanzos.
I discovered that my grandfather grew mostly Jenkins Club wheat and I hope to research that further. I have found some references in old USDA books and some old newspapers but no great detail. I plan to speak to my uncle who is a long time wheat grower and also to the farmer who is currently growing here- I want to know what wheat variety he grows. Stay tuned!!
