Interpretive Summary: ‘KS Hamilton’ hard red winter wheat was developed by the wheat breeding program at Kansas State University, and released by the Kansas in 2020. It was released for the dryland production in western Kansas and neighboring regions. KS Hamilton was developed using a modified bulk breeding method and was tested in yield trials for 6 yrs. KS Hamilton is intermediate in both maturity and plant height and has high grain yield potential in western Kansas, with good resistance to wheat streak mosaic virus and stem rust. KS Hamilton has an average test weight and an above-average baking quality.

Technical Abstract: ‘KS Hamilton’ (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 2020. KS Hamilton was selected from a three-way cross of KS08HW176-4//Bill Brown/KS08HW61-2. It was released for the dryland production in western Kansas and neighboring regions. KS Hamilton was developed using a modified bulk breeding method. KS Hamilton is an F6-derived line and was tested in yield trials for 6 yrs. KS Hamilton is intermediate in both maturity and plant height. It has high grain yield potential in western Kansas, and good resistance to wheat streak mosaic virus and stem rust. KS Hamilton has an average test weight and an above-average baking quality.
