Munich Durum Wheat was released by the North Dakota Agriculture Experiment Station in 1995.  Munich is similar to Renville in kernel weight, yield and test weight. Munich heads slightly earlier than Renville. It has lower leaf disease ratings than Renville. It is shorter and has stronger straw than Renville. Scab susceptibility is similar to Renville but much lower than Monroe. Semolina yields are good and produces good pasta.

Munich is named after a city in northeastern North Dakota as this variety performed especially well in that part of the state. Munich is a variety that should be accepted by producers who desire a high quality, good yield, high test weight durum with good protein.
