2016 Virginia On-Farm Wheat Test Plots

2015-16 was a tough year for wheat. Above normal temperatures in March resulted in wheat that was approaching the boot stage when a freeze hit on April 6th. Almost all fields were affected to some degree with some fields experiencing very significant tiller death. See figure 1. Some varieties were affected more than others. The freeze was followed by dry conditions and then very wet conditions in May. The result was a poor crop overall.
