Marquis (pr. marr-kwiss) was the primary wheat grown in Canada and the US in the early 20th century. In 1918 it was planted on more than 20 million acres ranging from Nebraska to Saskatchewan. It was favored for its short growing season, high yield and good bread making qualities. Bred by Charles Saunders of Dominion Experimental Farms in Canada in the early 1900s, Marquis is a cross of Red Fife and Hard Red Calcutta. It is a parent of most modern wheat.
