Lebsock Durum

Lebsock durum was released by the North Dakota Agriculture Experiment Station in 1999.  Lebsock is derived from a cross between Munich and other NDSU experimental lines.

Lebsock is a high yielding cultivar with good lodging resistance.  Lebsock is resistant to both stem and leaf rust and about equal to Renville in resistance to Fusarium head blight (scab).  In trials Lebsock has shown better resistance to tan spot and septoria than all other durum cultivars.Lebsock has good test weight and semolina extraction and overall good quality.  On average across North Dakota Lebsock has higher yield potential and higher test weight than other cultivars.

Lebsock will be protected under Plant Variety Protection (PVP) with Title V restrictions.  It can be sold only as a class of certified seed.
