Named for the Kingman county small town in south central Kansas, this variety is well adapted over a wide area as suggested by its pedigree.
K-State Research and Extension developed this hard red variety as an excellent choice for wheat acres planted after corn in central and eastern Kansas, as well as a comparable replacement for Everest. Zenda performed extremely well in the 2016 K-State trials in this area.
Zenda is a medium-height, medium-early variety that has a moderate resistance to stripe and stem rust and intermediate to leaf rust. It also has good acid soil tolerance and is resistant to soil borne mosaic virus. It will have a similar resistance to Fusarium head blight, or scab, as Everest and its barley yellow dwarf will be second only to Everest.

Tatanka is a new medium-height, medium-maturity variety hard red wheat, developed by K-State Research and Extension. It has shown very competitive yields in western Kansas under both dryland and limited irrigation, with below average straw strength. Tatanka performs well under low management environments.
Tatanka has moderate resistance to both stripe and stem rust and is intermediate to leaf rust. It is moderately tolerant to acid soils and is resistant to soil borne mosaic virus, which may allow it to come east into central Kansas. It is moderately susceptible to wheat streak mosaic virus.

|1.Rating codes are:1 – Highly resistant; 3 – Moderately resistant; 5 – Intermediate; 7 – Moderately susceptible; 9 – Highly susceptible. Blanks indicate insufficient information.
2. Hessian fly ratings are based on results of greenhouse tests with Kansas (Great Plains) biotype of Hessian fly. Hessian fly populations are often a mixture of biotypes thus results can vary among years and locations.
c. Indicates resistance has been inconsistent in greenhouse testing.
d. CLEARFIELD® variety, which is resistant to Beyond herbicide.
