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.
Entries in each experiment are determined by the companies or institutes which control
each variety, or line, not by experiment station personnel. Data from tests conducted at 10
locations were used to compile this report and they represent the varied growing conditions
farmers have around the State.
