Chad Lee, Extension Agronomist, University of Kentucky

The 2014 University of Kentucky Small Grains Variety Performance Test is available online. The test was conducted in six locations across the commonwealth and compared about 90 commercial varieties plus some experimental numbers. The overall state average was 95.8 bushels per acre for the test and the highest-yielding varieties averaged over 100 bushels per acre.
The report includes tests for wheat forages, wheat straw production, wheat grain yields, barley, hulless barley, cereal rye, triticale and oats. More details about this test are available at the Kentucky Small Grain Variety Testing Program site and links can also be found at the Grain Crops Extension website, under the "Current Topics" page.
