Results for the 2021-2022 fall-planted UC Small Grain Variety Trials are now available at:
Due to changing trends in California small grain production, there is a growing need for information on variety-specific forage biomass productivity. As a result, during the 2021-22 season, we measured forage yields for wheat, triticale, barley and oats at two of our trial locations, in addition to our continuing grain assessments. Both boot-stage and soft-dough stage forage yields were measured, and the resulting summaries are included in the 2022 results under the 'Fall Planted Forage Yield'...
Preliminary grain and forage yield results for our fall-planted common wheat, triticale, durum wheat and barley trials are now available on the UC Small Grains Research and Information Center website:
