Ellis County Wheat Plot Tour set May 20

Farmers make plans to join us for the Annual Ellis County Wheat Plot tour to be held on May 20 beginning at 6 p.m. Come view some of the most commonly planted wheat varieties in the area along with several newer releases planted side by side in a farmer cooperators field. An Extension specialist in agronomy and plant pathology will be present to discuss varieties and diseases of wheat common to our area. Also, an Extension entomologist will discuss the wheat stem sawfly a common pest to northern spring wheat growers and how a new variant of this insect appears to be evolving further southward. And as always there will be plenty of time for questions and answers.

The Ellis County wheat plot is located one-half mile south of the Fairground Road and 330th Avenue intersection north of Victoria.

Following the field day a complimentary meal is provided by businesses in the county. No RSVP is necessary to attend and all interested people are invited to attend.

If you have any questions call the Ellis County Extension Office at 785-628-9430.
