Interpretive Summary: Kansas State University and USDA-ARS collaborated to develop a new hard white winter wheat variety called 'KS Venada'. The new variety is medium-late and medium-tall with high grain yield, test weight and above-average grain protein content. It has good disease resistance and good sprouting tolerance. KS Venada is available to farmers and is adapted to dryland production in the Central Plains Region.

Technical Abstract: ‘KS Venada’ hard white winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was developed at the Agricultural Research Center-Hays, Kansas State University and released by the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station in 2018. KS Venada was selected from a two-way cross of HV9W05-415W/Fred-2-18-2 made in 2007 at Hays, KS. The objective of this cross was to develop a hard white winter wheat variety with adaptation to dryland production in Kansas. KS Venada was developed using a modified bulk breeding method. KS Venada is an F5-derived line with experimental number KS13HW92-3, and it was tested in the Kansas Intra-state Nursery for four years. KS Venada is medium late and medium tall with high grain volume weight and above average protein concentration. KS Venada was released because of its competitive grain yield in Kansas, good end-use quality and disease resistance, and improved pre-harvest sprouting tolerance and straw strength.
