The large number of commercially available varieties of wheat, oat, rye, barley, and triticale makes it difficult for growers to select varieties most suited for their particular area of the State.  Making this decision requires up-to-date, unbiased, reliable information on varietal yields and characteristics. This report is published annually to provide Alabama growers with this information.

Data from tests conducted at 12 locations were used to compile this report and they represent the varied growing conditions farmers have around the State.
