This anchors the plant firmly in the introduction of a novel trait into a related species with potential for ecosystem disruption. never emerges from the soil and eventually the seedling dies. Spring wheat is planted in locations with severe winters and flowers in the same year yielding grain in about 90 days. In the case of very deeply sown seeds (more than 100 mm), the It also serves as a leading source of vegetal proteins as its protein content is about 13%.

Due to the vernalization requirement of winter wheat, it is planted in the early fall (September and October) so that plants can emerge and develop sufficiently prior to onset of winter.
