Wheat Variety Plot tour scheduled
Submitted by David Hallauer
The annual Meadowlark Extension District Wheat Variety Plot Tour will be hosted once again by plot cooperators Doug and Leonard Edelman at their farm, four miles west of Sabetha. This year’s tour will be on Thursday, June 7, starting at 9 a.m.
The farm is located at 2490 T Road in Sabetha, just southeast of the intersection of T and 192nd Road. Plan to meet at the farm promptly at 9 a.m., so we can travel back to the plot site.
This year’s plot consists of 12 entries from four companies, with two of the 12 being new introductions this year. We’ll discuss growth characteristics and yield performance of each of the varieties with Dr. Stu Duncan, K-State Research and Extension, Northeast Area Crops and Soils Specialist from Manhattan.
Refreshments will be available starting at 8:45 a.m., courtesy of the Kansas Wheat Alliance and Meadowlark Extension District. For information (or in case of inclement weather), contact the Seneca Office of the Meadowlark Extension District at 785-336-2184 or e-mail David Hallauer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
