*Variety maturity is rated specifically for the Delta region relative to other varieties. Later maturing varieties are more likely to avoid spring freeze damage and thus are generally better suited to northernmost regions, particularly if wheat is planted early in the fall. 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 generally have marginal adaptation in southern regions and may not yield well, or may fail to meet vernalization requirements (cold temperatures) to stimulate reproductive development, particularly if wheat is planted late in the fall.
