Baart Early came to the U.S. in 1900 from South Africa by way of Australia. It was extensively grown in Arizona and the Pacific Coast states through the 1930s before mechanized farming left it behind. The interest in sustainable cultivation and heritage grains has encouraged the resurgence of this spring wheat variety.
