Hard Red Winter Wheat
 Hard Red Winter Wheat 

Hard Red Winter (HRW) is the most prevalent class of Wheat grown in the Untied States. HRW is grown predominantly in Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and the Texas panhandle. The cold, sub zero winters and the general lack of precipitation make these regions of the country ideal for Hard Red Winter Wheat production. The primary use of Hard Red Winter Wheat Flour is for bread making.

HRW is standardized under the U.S. Standards for Wheat.
