K-State wheat plot tours for June 7 - 9

The week of June 7 to 9 offers another exciting lineup of wheat plot tours! Producers willing 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 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.

For the week of June 7 to 9, the schedule plot tour locations include:
