A new report ranks the popularity of winter wheat varieties in Kansas.

The National Agricultural Statistics Service said Thursday that "Everest" continued to be the leading wheat variety seeded in Kansas. It accounts for 14.3 percent of the planted acres for 2014, the same percent as the previous year.

Developed by Kansas State University, Everest topped the list in the eastern two-thirds of the state.

A wheat variety called TAM 111 is the second most popular variety with 11.6 percent of the acreage. It is the leading variety planted in western Kansas.

In third place was the variety called T 158, with 5 percent of the planted acreage.

The wheat variety report is funded by the Kansas Wheat Commission.
