Impact of the OSU Wheat Variety Testing Program

 

Choosing the right wheat variety can have a huge impact on profit. The Oklahoma State University small grains variety testing program is designed to deliver timely information to producers on currently-available wheat cultivars that might be well-adapted to Oklahoma. Emphasis is placed on local-control of test sites and locations span the state from Afton to Olustee to Keyes. Each year we test between 20 and 30 cultivars at 20 to 25 sites for an annual total of over 2,500 individual plots sown and harvested. In addition we measure and report phenological and physiological plant parameters, such as coleoptile length and first hollow stem, which are important for adaptability to Oklahoma.


The Oklahoma State University small grains variety testing program is funded by the Oklahoma Wheat Commission and the Oklahoma Wheat Research Foundation. So, if you are a farmer viewing this site, thank you for your support through your check-off dollars. We appreciate it!
