KS Venada is a new, medium-tall, medium-late, white wheat from Kansas Wheat Alliance that has excellent baking qualities for both white and whole flour. It has a good disease package for stripe rust, leaf rust, scab, soilborne mosaic virus and some acid soil tolerance.
It has improved straw strength and preharvest sprouting tolerance (intermediate tolerance) compared to Joe. Its competitive yield records in central and western Kansas and north-central Oklahoma make it a good fit agronomically for producers in these areas looking for a high-quality white wheat variety.
