2016 Crop Variety Data Available on Web


Carrington Research Extension Center (CREC) 2016 early season crop variety trial data are available at the website:

Crops include winter wheat, rye and triticale; spring and durum wheat; barley; and canola. Hail was received at the CREC on July 9 that reduced yield and increased variability among varieties tested in the trials. For example, the dryland spring wheat variety trial at Carrington averaged 33.6 bushels/acre, with a range of 23.7 to 39.3 bushels/acre.

Off-station spring wheat variety trials show exceptional seed yield plus adequate protein. Hard Red Spring (HRS) wheat trial yield at Dazey (pictured below) averaged 76.8 bushels/acre with 9 highest-yielding varieties (Faller, HRS3361, HRS3419, HRS3530, Prosper, Shelly, Surpass, SY Valda and WB9507) at 82 to 89 bushels/acre. Tri-county (Wishek) HRS wheat trial yield averaged 72.8 bushels/acre with five highest-yielding varieties (Faller, Linkert, Prosper, SY Valda and WB9507) at 80 to 88 bushels/acre.

Check the website periodically for data from additional trials.
