Grand Forks County 2003 HRSW Variety Trials

Willie Huot Kendall Nichols

Extension Agents/Grand Forks County

2003 Trial Information: The 2003 trial was planted on May 1st into good moisture. There was still frost in the ground, causing the south west end of the plot to become wet. Subsequent rains caused slow emergence and lower plant stands on the west half of the plot. The west half of the plot had Folicur applied at the 4oz rate when all the wheat varieties had headed and many varieties were flowering. Disease pressure was moderate to moderately heavy with Bacterial Blight, Septoria, Leaf Rust and Scab. Due to poor stands and harvest problems the data was from the first wheat replication was not used. All three replications were used for the barley data. There was light to moderate lodging. All yields were adjusted to 13% moisture.

2002 Trial Information: The 2002 trial was planted on May 17th into good moisture. To help evaluate the varieties' tolerance to disease pressure, no fungicides were applied . There was substantial leaf disease pressure. There was moderate to heavy lodging. All yields were adjusted to 13% moisture.

2001 Trial Information: The 2001 trial was planted on May 4th into good moisture. Fungicides were applied. Severe lodging problems made harvesting very difficult. The plot was harvested August 20th and 21st.

WHEAT: The 2003 plot was split in half and the western half of the plot was treated with 4 oz. of Folicur. Due to emergence problems and harvest problem the first replication of the plot was not included on the final results. The western half of the plot was very wet and emergence was delayed and stands were reduced.

The results of the fungicided plots are in bold.

*Note: The varieties Orion, Polaris and Oklee were in a wet spot on the second replication causing delayed emergence and maturity while increasing moisture content and reducing test weights.
