India Jammu, a landrace soft white wheat variety, was selected to be an alternative to Sonora wheat, both from the agricultural and from the end use viewpoint. The yield is often lower than that of Sonora wheat. However, when grown in the San Joaquin Valley after planting early in the year and applying a small amount of irrigation in this arid region, India-Jammu produced well. It seems that India-Jammu needs a relatively warm growing season to yield well.
India-Jammu is an exception to most soft white wheat varieties in that it possesses elastic gluten similar to hard red wheat varieties and is likely to become a variety favored by whole wheat bread makers, provided that it is grown to have a grain protein content of 12% or more, on a 12% moisture basis.
