EVEREST WHEAT

TRITICUM AESTIVUM

EVEREST BROCHURE

Summary

It remains one of the “go-to” varieties for eastern and central Kansas. Everest will need to be sprayed for either stripe rust or tan spot if those disease are a problem. In the absence of those leaf disease, it has very few other weaknesses. Everest is not a high-tillering variety and needs to get established well and tiller in the fall to make top yields. It cannot easily make up for a poor start by tillering a lot in the spring. In some years, however, its lower tillering tendency can help it survive years when stress occurs late. It will not get too lush when conditions are good early, so it stays within itself when conditions turn hot and dry late in the season. It fills well under stress, and has very good yield potential when managed.
