K-State wheat plot tours for May 20-24, 2019


The week of May 20-24 features several 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.
