2024 County Standardized Trials-Wheat data

This year’s County Standardized Trials, Wheat Program tested 23 varieties of Soft Red Winter Wheat in 10 locations.  Seven of those locations where used to compile our variety recommendations for the 2024 fall planting.  Over all, yields across varieties and locations averaged just over 76 bu/ac, with an average of 10.4% moisture and 55.1 lb testweight.

Thank you to all the producer who put these trials out and the County Agents who organized and oversee these variety plots.  Also, a special thanks to our cooperating companies who supply seed and genetics to test in our environment.  Wheat yields have increased dramatically over the years, better genetics and breeding programs along with state and local testing are proving to add weight to the combine and increase profits for wheat growers in TN.

If you are interested in having a County Standardized Trial (Corn, Soy, Cotton, Wheat) on your farm, contact your local County Extension office for more details.

This Fall, contact your seed suppliers and request  wheat seed from the list above with confidence from our unbias variety testing program.
