Variety Highlights

Excellent milling and baking quality
Good acid soil tolerance
Excellent grazing potential

This K-State variety, marketed by Kansas Wheat Alliance is best adapted to the central corridor of Kansas because of its medium maturity.  It has also done well in south-central Kansas with its very good acid soil tolerance.  1863 has good stripe rust resistance and more desirable milling and baking quality, but is moderately susceptible to leaf rust.

It’s straw strength is below average, which can be a problem some years in high yield environments.

Strengths:

  • Excellent milling and baking quality
  • Good acid soil tolerance
