Tour of Wheat Variety Trials scheduled for June 11
Are you looking for a positive cover crop experience, improved soil quality and health, reduced soil erosion, a place to haul manure in the summer, a breakup of the weed cycle, diversification of your corn and soybean rotation, an opportunity to receive additional cost share funding for conservation work? Then look no further than growing winter wheat according to Keith Glewen and Nathan Mueller, Nebraska Extension Educators.
Nebraska Extension will be hosting a wheat plot tour on Thursday evening, June 11 at the University of Nebraska Agricultural Research and Development Center (ARDC) near Mead. The tour will start at 6:30 p.m. at the ARDC Agronomy Research site located ½ mile west of County Road 6 and H in Saunders County.
Dr. Stephen Baenziger, UNL Wheat Breeder and Dr. Stephen Wegulo, Extension Plant Pathologist will walk growers through winter wheat variety development plots. Supper will be served following the tour at the ARDC Christenson Research and Education Building.
Wheat variety trials in Nebraska are made possible in-part through funding provided by the Nebraska Wheat Board.
