Wheat variety plot planted

By David G. Hallauer

Meadowlark Extension District Agent

The 12-entry wheat variety demonstration plot was planted Oct. 18 on the Doug and Leonard Edelman farm one and a half miles west of Sabetha on 184th Rd, northwest of the intersection of 184th and W roads.

This year’s plot includes three varieties new to the plot. T-158 (Limagrain Cereals), WB-Grainfield (WestBred), SY Southwind (AgriPro), and WB-4458 (WestBred) join CJ, SY Wolf, T-153, Everest, 1863, Cedar, Armour, and Redhawk to complete the plot. Cedar is the check variety. Thank you to our local and regional seed suppliers for supplying entries.

The plot was lightly tilled and fertilized prior to planting with 30 pounds N, 20 pounds of P, and 10 pounds of S. Seeding rate was 120 pounds per acre. Plot signs aren’t up, but each variety is marked with a wooden stake if you want to stop by and take a look. For a complete plot lineup, contact a Meadowlark Extension District Office or check out the Crops & Soils page at www.meadowlark.ksu.edu.
