Each season, Michigan State University Extension’s wheat breeding team evaluates the performance of numerous soft red and soft white winter wheat varieties. The results for the 2013 season are available at the MSU Wheat Performance Trials website.

The commercial version of the report summarizes data taken across six state-wide sites. It provides comparative numbers and scores for 63 (52 soft red and 11 soft white) commercial varieties on grain yield, test weight, harvest moisture, plant lodging, maturity, disease susceptibility and baking qualities.

The performance report is the single best reference for growers to use when selecting new varieties. When considering varieties, growers are encouraged to use the multi-year and multi-site data. This helps insure that varieties are selected that will likely perform under a range of conditions.

The report is also a helpful reference for management decisions. The information on lodging, maturity and disease resistance can aid growers in fine-tuning strategies relative to nitrogen fertilization and fungicide programs.

The trials are conducted by MSU’s Lee Siler, Sue Hammer and Eric Olson.
