Lambert is an early-season variety with high yield potential and good grain quality. It is adapted for intermediate to high rainfall dryland areas in northern Idaho, eastern Washington and eastern Oregon. Lambert can be
grown in irrigated regions but its height may preclude production under wheel line irrigation.
