2012 Ohio wheat performance results available
The purpose of the Ohio Wheat Performance Test is to evaluate wheat varieties, blends, brands, and breeding lines for yield, grain quality and other important performance characteristics. This information gives wheat producers comparative information for selecting the varieties best suited for their production system and market.
Varieties differ in yield potential, winter hardiness, maturity, standability, disease and insect resistance, and other agronomic characteristics. Depending on variety and test site, yields varied between 56.6 and 123.1 bushels per acre, and test weight ranged from 55.2 to 63.2 pounds per bushel. Selection should be based on performance from multiple test sites and years.
