Interpretive Summary: ‘KS Dallas’ is a new hard red winter wheat released by the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station in 2019. It was developed from a three-way cross ‘KS08HW112-6//TX03A0148/Danby TR’ by the wheat breeding program at Agricultural Research Center-Hays, Kansas State University for dryland wheat production in western Kansas. KS Dallas has medium maturity and height, good bread-making quality, good resistance to prevalent diseases including wheat streak mosaic virus and leaf rust, and high grain yield potential in western Kansas.

Technical Abstract: ‘KS Dallas’ (Reg. No. ____; PI____ ) hard red winter wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was developed by the wheat breeding program at the Agricultural Research Center-Hays, Kansas State University, and released by the Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station in 2019. KS Dallas was selected from a three-way cross ‘KS08HW112-6//TX03A0148/Danby TR’ made in 2009 at Hays, KS. The objective of this cross was to develop a hard winter wheat cultivar with adaptation to dryland production in western Kansas. KS Dallas was developed using a modified bulk breeding method. KS Dallas is an F6-derived line and was tested in yield trials across Kansas for four years. KS Dallas has medium maturity, medium height, and medium-long coleoptile. It has high grain yield potential in western Kansas and good resistance to the prevalent diseases including wheat streak mosaic virus and leaf rust (caused by Puccinia triticina Erikss.). It also has good bread-making quality.
