*Variety maturity is rated specifically for the Delta region relative to other varieties. Later maturing varieties are more likely to avoid freeze damage and are generally better suited to northernmost regions, particularly if wheat is planted early. Early maturing varieties are best suited for relatively late planting dates.

*Variety maturity is rated specifically for South Mississippi relative to other varieties. Earlier maturing varieties are generally best suited for southernmost areas. Later maturing varieties may have marginal adaptation in southern regions and may not yield well, or they may fail to meet vernalization requirements (cold temperatures) to stimulate normal reproductive development during the spring, particularly when planted late.
