Results from 2013 UNL variety trials for winter wheat, alfalfa, winter barley, and triticale are now available in the Fall Seed Guide 2013, released this week. The UNL Extension guide also lists certified seed producers by variety for these crops and field peas, rye, turfgrass, and perennial forage grasses, as provided by the Nebraska Crop Improvement Association.
Selecting the best performing winter wheat varieties for your conditions and operation is one of the most important farm management decisions you can make. UNL offers several resources to provide objective, research-based data to help you make the right decision for your farm. In addition to the UNL Fall Seed Guide (EC103), also see:
