This publication lists those wheat varieties which have demonstrated superior productivity in the MSU Wheat and Oat Variety Trials and summarizes their characteristics. Adaptability and performance of wheat varieties often varies considerably depending upon climatic differences inherent in different geographical regions of Mississippi and the Mid-South, particularly as latitude ranges from north to south. Thus, variety performance is analyzed and presented independently for the Delta region, north Mississippi and south Mississippi. This impartial information should help you better assess how many variety traits potentially work to affect wheat performance on your farm next season.
