This variety from Kansas Wheat Alliance is still a workhorse for tougher ground in almost all of the Central Plains except where low-pH soils are a concern. Field reports and test results in 2014 were generally average, with a few very good results. Fuller is moderately susceptible to stripe rust. It is below average on acid soil tolerance. If planted on acid soils, farmers should apply phosphorus in the seed slot at planting time.
Fuller is susceptible to many diseases, and may need a fungicide.
Fuller has only average fall grazing potential. Planting late will help to keep it from breaking dormancy too early in the spring. Its early maturity makes it ideally suited for southwest Oklahoma. Fuller has good drought tolerance.
