K-State Wheat Plot Tours for May 21-25 and May 29-June 1


The weeks of May 21-25 and May 29-June 1 features 31 wheat plot tours in Kansas. Producers wanting to learn about the different varieties can choose to attend one (or several) plot tours in their county or agricultural district.

The plot tours generally include a discussion of wheat conditions across the state, as well as tips on what to look for when selecting wheat varieties. New and upcoming varieties are discussed, as well as older and more established ones, and a discussion of how all these varieties are responding to this growing season’s conditions.
