Winter wheat harvest results from the 2017 WSU Cereal Variety Testing Program are complete and posted on our website. Spring wheat and barley results will be added as soon as they are available. Winter wheat results have been uploaded to the Variety Selection Tool.
The interactive selection tool presents you with a two-year average of agronomic traits from all the testing locations in a given precipitation zone. Keep in mind that longer-term averages are more powerful and useful when evaluating yield results. One year of information only gives you a piece of the puzzle, and may not be the best predictor of future variety performance.
We encourage you to look at results from as many testing programs as possible to aid in choosing what varieties to plant this fall. Obviously, yield is ‘king’, but remember to weigh other variety characteristics such as disease resistance and end-use quality.
