'Conlon' heads earlier than 'Bowman' and shows good heat tolerance by maintain kernel plumpness. It is resistant to powdery mildew and net blotch but is moderately susceptible to spot blotch. It is prone to lodging under high yield growing conditions. It appears best adapted to western ND and adjacent western states.

To ensure genetic purity, 'Conlon' was protected under PVPA Title V (certificate no. 9700243) which has expired in the US.  It is still a protected variety in Canada.
