Kanmark from Kansas Wheat Alliance is targeted primarily for western and central Kansas, especially west of Hutchinson and Salina. Its record has been best in western Kansas where it is regarded as a workhorse variety: fairly consistent toward the upper middle of the pack on yield charts, but has surprised some with high yield. It can be grown under irrigation or high management.
Under heavy stripe rust pressure, it can show susceptibility. It is extremely susceptible to scab, and should be avoided on acidic soils. It has shown good winterhardiness and moderate drought tolerance. Although it is a very upright wheat, it often looks thin in the field, and has held its height well during droughty conditions.
