KS Hatchett (KS090049K-8) is an early maturing (about a day later than Everest) hard red winter wheat with acceptable straw strength, very good resistance to leaf and stem rusts, and good test weight. It has performed well across widely disparate growing seasons and has significant quality advantages over Zenda.
Its high tillering ability and earlier maturity make it a preferred choice following soybeans throughout the central corridor. It also offers Hessian fly resistance and an effective level of acid soil tolerance that many varieties in the central region lack.
