2017 Test Strips Yield

2017 was a tough year for wheat in West Central Kansas. We had insues with the snow the end of April, some wheat streak, some hail damage, and a dry windy finish. This year definitely was tough on the medium-late varieties. Overall, we still had some decent looking wheats.

2016 Test Strips Yield

2016 was a very good year for wheat. However, we did have some hail and the strip trial had 40% hail damage. The Byrd won the test plot for the second year in a row and we had several varities with very good yields. The LCS Chrome was planted on the 17th of October and that could be why its yield is lower than expected.
