2018 Soft Red Winter Wheat
Performance Test Results

News: Wheat results will be available online only. A printed version will not be published this year.
A note about test weights: Test weights reported this year are lower than normal. Although wheat varieties differ for test weights, most of the variation among varieties and the overall low numbers this year are the result of environment. Hot dry weather causes maturity to occur more rapidly and sooner than normal. This results in lighter kernels. Rains after maturity, but before harvest can decrease test weights. Kernels swell with moisture, but because of their structure they do not shrink to same size after drying. This decreases test weights. MU Variety Testing combines harvest all the grain including small kernels. Commercial combines may be set to remove small, undesirable kernels. So, our test weights may be lower than farmer harvested wheat.
