Welcome

The University of Kentucky Small Grain Variety Testing Program evaluates wheat and barley varieties that are commercially available or may soon be available to farmers. Annual variety performance testing provide farmers, seed producers, extension agents and consultants with current, unbiased information to help them select the varieties best adapted to their locality and individual requirements.

Seven wheat variety trials are conducted at seven locations throughout the state under either No-Till or conventional tillage. Barley, oats, triticale, spelt and cereal rye varieties are evaluated at one test location. Additional trials for wheat varietal differences in straw yield, cover crop and forage yield potential are conducted at one location.
