The large number of commercially available varieties of wheat, oat, 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 eight locations were used to compile this report and they represent the varied growing conditions farmers experience around the State.
