Josecha F2007 was developed by the wheat breeding program of INIFAP at the Bajio Experimental Station, Celaya, Guanajuato. Josecha F2007 takes 83 days to flowering and 128 to maturity, produces 8.7% higher yield than Barcenas S2002 and 8.7% than Kronstand F2003 under irrigated conditions. Josecha F2007 has higher resistance to stripped and leaf rust than the commercial wheat varieties being grown at El Bajio region, 11.1% whole grain protein content, 80 kg hL-1 hectoliter weight and 387 W x 10-4 J gluten strength. Josecha F2007 is recommended for El Bajio region and irrigated wheat-producing areas of Tamaulipas, Nuevo Leon, Zacatecas, Durango and Chihuahua.
