Variety Highlights

High yield potential
Tolerant of acidic soils
Resistant to soilborne mosaic

This variety from the Kansas Wheat Alliance tillers high and has good potential for top-end yield under increased management, such as a fungicide application in high-stress conditions. It’s somewhat taller than typical varieties from K-State’s Manhattan-based program.

Larry is variety well adapted statewide as it has been performing well in state trials. Commercial behavior denotes tremendous stability across environmental diversity, and is adapting westward though it’s response to WSMV is better classified as tolerance than resistance. It has also excelled under moderate to fairly intense drought.

Strengths:

  • Good tolerance to acidic soils
  • Resistant to soilborne mosaic
  • High yield potential
