2022 Small Grain Variety Trials
Results of the 2022 Maryland Wheat and Barley Variety Trials are now available. The trials evaluate wheat and barley yield, head scab/DON, and growth of select varieties planted across the state of Maryland. Data is used to help farmers and crop advisors select the best performing varieties. When picking varieties, remember to select varieties that have good yield stability and have good resistance to Fusarium head blight.
The full report is summarized on the next few pages (wheat pp. 2-6, barley p. 7). An online copy of the report can be downloaded at http://blog.umd.edu/agronomynews/2022/07/27/2022-maryland-small-grain-variety-trials/ or call your local Extension office for a hard copy.
