Wheat Variety Trials - 2012 Winter Wheat Harvest

Tom Molloy, Aaron Englander, and Jared harvested the winter wheat variety trial plots at University of Maine’s Roger’s Farm on July 20th. Here are photos showing some of the different varieties. Additional trials were conducted in Houlton ME, Alburgh VT, and Willsboro NY. Click here for results from 2010 and 2011 variety trials. We will post results from the 2012 trials as they become available.
