Hard Red Winter Wheat Variety
“KanMark” is named for Mark A. Carleton, an early plant explorer who introduced the materials that led to the foundation of the U.S. durum wheat industry and brought new winter hardy landraces of wheat to Kansas. He is credited with developing “Kanred,” the first improved hard red winter wheat released by Kansas State University.
Barley yellow dwarf: Intermediate
Acid soil tolerance: Moderately Susceptible
This variety from Kansas Wheat Alliance is targeted primarily for western and central Kansas, especially west of Hutchinson and Salina. Its record has been best in western Kansas where it is regarded as a workhorse variety: fairly consistent toward the upper middle of the pack on yield charts, but has surprised some with high yield. It can be grown under irrigation or high management.
Special Note: Not well suited for planting after corn.
