Report: Everest Most Popular Kansas Hard Red Wheat Variety

KSAL StaffFebruary 27, 2015

A government report shows that two varieties of winter wheat developed by Kansas State University are the leading varieties planted in the state.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service reported that Everest is the top hard red winter wheat variety of all wheat seeded in Kansas.

Everest accounts for 15.8 percent of planted acres for the 2015 crop, and it’s the favorite in the eastern two-thirds of the state.

It is followed in popularity by the TAM 111 variety with 9.1 percent of the acreage. Coming in third is T158, with 5.1 percent of the acreage.

Among hard white wheat varieties, Danby was the Kansas favorite, accounting for just under half of the state’s white wheat. Most of the state’s white wheat is planted in southwestern Kansas.
