2017 PNW Crop Tour Schedule

The 2017 crop tour season will soon be starting and provides opportunities to view field trials and interact with Washington State University personnel and others about cereal varieties and crop management practices. Cereal breeders, extension agronomists, plant pathologists, and other scientists will be presenting information at various events. The small grain variety and research tours, listed below, provide a guide for wheat, barley, and legume tours in Washington and nearby locations.

Please check with the contact listed prior to the tour to verify the time, location, agenda, and ensure a place at the table if food is served. 2017 Location maps for the WSU Cereal Variety Trials are available online. Washington Grain Commission funds support the trials and the tours, and we look forward to seeing you in the fields.
