Wheat variety results available


Many of the 2009 winter wheat variety test results are now available online and the rest will soon follow, said a University of Nebraska-Lincoln specialist.

Each year, UNL tests winter wheat varieties in several locations throughout the state, said Bob Klein, Western Nebraska crops specialist. Plots near Arapahoe, McCook, Imperial, Brule and North Platte provide producers with data on yield, moisture, weight, height, lodging and protein content. An additional test of irrigated wheat near O'Neill and several plots in the Panhandle and eastern Nebraska complete the performance trials.

Klein advised producers to select varieties that have done well in their local area for three or more years, but to also look at new varieties showing up for the first or second year.
