Wheat Plot Information

Colorado State University compiles all the wheat performance test information from Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma, and Wyoming.  I recommend this tool for evaluating wheat variety performance across multiple site-years.

CSU Ram Wheat Database

Many local extension agents in Northwest Kansas collaborate with producers to plant unreplicated demonstration plots.  These plots provide producers and extension personnel an opportunity to evaluate varieties in the field at educational wheat plot tours.


County Wheat Demonstration Plots Summary Results

More county information will be added as it becomes available.

**Note: When making a variety decision, use all resources and information available, including K-State Research and Extension sites across the state, neighboring states when applicable, see companies, and past grower experience. County demonstration plots are not a replicated and should be used along with the replicated performance test data found at: http://www.agronomy.k-state.edu/services/crop-performance-tests/index.html  or via the CSU Ram Wheat Database
