WSU Variety Testing Program 2021 PNW Crop Tour Schedule


COVID-19 Information

Potential attendees are encouraged to check on government guidelines and the current phase each county is in at the time of their respective field day. You can find out what your county phase is at the County Status and Healthy Washington Roadmap to Recovery website. Current guidelines for each phase indicate field days can occur if in Phase II or Phase III but will be canceled if downgraded to Phase I.

The 2021 crop tour season will soon be starting and provides opportunities to view field trials and interact with Washington State University personnel. WSU is committed to providing a quality experience for stakeholders this year, while still complying with current CDC guidelines. The list below provides an outline of when each small grain variety tour will be offered in Washington.

Please check with the contact listed prior to the tour to verify the time, location, and agenda or reach out to your local county wheat growers association or other co-sponsor. Location maps for the WSU Cereal Variety Trials are available online. We would like to thank the wheat growers and Washington Grain Commission for funding to support the trials and tours, and we look forward to seeing you in the field!
