2011 Wheat Planting Decision Meetings Scheduled

Growers looking to increase yield and decrease risk will want to plant the best possible wheat varieties this fall for top yields next summer. The annual Wheat Planting Decision Meetings will offer growers insight into the highest-yielding varieties in the Colorado State University (CSU) Uniform Variety Performance Trials and Collaborative On-Farm Tests (COFT). Each grower who attends the meeting will receive a 1-gigabyte flash drive containing the Wheat Variety Database, which allows growers to make comparisons between varieties and look at data from the CSU trials going back to 1990.
