KS Mako is a high yielding wheat variety out of the K-State Manhattan breeding program.  It is medium maturity and medium height with Jagger and LCS Chrome in its pedigree.  This variety will have a yield performance similar to KS Providence and other top yielding varieties in the central KS corridor and has also performed well in western KS with decent drought tolerance.  KS Mako has very good quality and above average protein at a given yield level.  It carries the Wsm2 gene, giving it some of the best wheat streak mosaic virus resistance for a Central KS adapted wheat variety. KS Mako is intermediate to moderately susceptible to leaf and stripe rust and susceptible to FHB.  It will be a solid companion variety to KS Providence with quality that should get it on preferred variety lists.
