KS HAMILTON - NEW
KS Hamilton (KS15H137) is a medium maturity hard red winter wheat with a similar heading date as KS Western Star and three days later than T158. It has moderate shattering resistance with average straw strength, similar to KS Dallas and T158. KS Hamilton has good resistance to wheat streak mosaic virus, stem rust, soilborne mosaic virus, and Hessian fly; and intermediate reactions to stripe rust and leaf rust. Its WSMV resistance can hold up to 21°C/70°F, which is similar to KS Dallas and three degrees warmer than those resistant varieties with the WSM2 gene.

Released in 2019, Guardian is the first in its class to deliver superior resistance to wheat viruses, from stacking a gene for resistance to the Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus itself (wsm-2) with a gene for resistance to the wheat curl mite which transmits WSMV, wheat mosaic virus, and triticum mosaic virus. Guardian also carries leading resistance to all three predominant rusts (Stripe, Leaf, and Stem). Certified Seed Only, no saved seed allowed.
