Manitoba producers have another tool available to them this fall to help them evaluate which winter wheat varieties might be best suited to their area.
While the 2011 winter wheat crop is already in the ground, a website developed by Manitoba Agriculture provides a comprehensive review of how leading varieties performed this past year.
The 2010 winter wheat variety performance data site can be found at www.gov.mb.ca/agriculture//crops/cereals/bfg01s11.html , or if you Google “Manitoba winter wheat data” it gives you the link to the page. The site provides a description of varieties produced in 2010, along with a yield comparison table with data from a wide range of production sites.
Along with yield, the site provides a wide range of quality and production information on different varieties.
