2014 Michigan wheat performance data now available

Michigan wheat farmers will want to spend some time reviewing results of the just released 2014 wheat varietal performance trials, before making seed purchasing decisions for this fall’s planting.

 

Michigan State University wheat experts have planted wheat varietal trial plots for over 15 years. In 2014, Dr. Eric Olson and Lee Siler had plots at six locations. Last summer’s plantings were seriously challenged by the epic winter, and the Sanilac and Lenawee County sites had to be abandoned this spring due to severe water and ice damage.

 

Data on the 2014 trials is posted at www.miwheat.org, the website of the Michigan Wheat Program in the What’s Hot Box on the front page. Once clicked, the results of the 2014 trials is displayed alongside the 2013 wheat variety trials. The MWP website also has links to MSU wheat variety trial results in 2012 and prior years.
