K-State wheat plot tours for May 23-27

The week of May 23 to May 27 is another exciting week for Kansas wheat producers all over the state! Wheat plot tours are up and going and producers willing to learn about the different varieties can choose to attend one (or several) plot tours in their county or agricultural district.

This upcoming week holds 22 wheat plot tours across Kansas. 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 for one operation. 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.
