Comments

This hard red variety from Kansas Wheat Alliance was released from the K-State Hays Experiment Station from its white wheat breeding line—derived from a cross made in 2006 from Kansas experimentals and LimaGrain’s T151 hard red winter wheat. It’s been tested across Kansas where it has been showing very competitive yields central and is excellent west, and will do well on limited input dryland systems in the High Plains. It has done well with yield on irrigation, though its average straw strength could be limiting.
It comes with resistance to rusts and soil-borne mosaic and some tolerance to acidic soild. It’s intermediate to WSMV in the field, and has tolerance to acidic soils. Milling and baking qualities are good.

Strengths:

  • Resistance to stripe rust, leaf rust

Weaknesses:

  • Moderately susceptible to WSMV pressure
