Area of adaptation and primary use of the variety:
OR2X2 CL+ is adapted to the high rainfall/irrigated production areas in the Pacific Northwest.
OR2X2 CL+ carries two genes conferring resistance to Beyond herbicide, and is intended for use in wheat producing areas that have issues with jointed goatgrass and downy brome.
