K-State wheat plot tours for June 10-14, 2019

Share Tweet Email

The second week of June features several wheat plot tours in Kansas. These are the last tours this spring. 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.
