Everest is an early maturing variety from the Kansas Wheat Alliance. It has very good yield potential, but may need a fungicide to protect it from stripe rust and tan spot. Everest has more resistance to head scab than any other variety. It is moderately resistant to barley yellow dwarf and Hessian fly. It has good acid soil tolerance, test weight, and straw strength. Everest has good drought tolerance, but may need irrigation in the west.
