2016 HRS WHEAT TRIAL RESULTS

TCG Hard Red Spring Wheat Trials In 2017

2017 was a year of contrasts with low or no yields due to severe drought in the western areas and some record yields in the northeastern areas, much on the strength of stored moisture from 2016, and fortuitous thunderstorms.  The HRS varieties region wide were shortened in 2017, lodging was not a big issue.  The HRS varietal performance from the TCG trials is summarized in tables below, note that all 6 environments listed are in the eastern growing area, so they do not reflect the extreme effects of the drought impacted western environments.
