Year of release: 2016
Developer: Kansas State University
Barley yellow dwarf: Intermediate
Acid soil tolerance: Tolerant
A new hard red wheat from Kansas Wheat Alliance that will be an excellent choice for wheat acres after corn in central and eastern Kansas. It performed extremely well in the 2016 K-State trials in this area.
Zenda is a medium-early, medium height variety that has moderate resistance to stem, stripe, and leaf rust. It also has good acid soil tolerance and is resistant to soilborne mosaic virus. It will have similar resistance to Fusarium head blight, or scab, as Everest but will be slightly more susceptible to barley yellow dwarf.
