Wheat Variety Plots
The 2018 Kansas 4-H and FFA Wheat Variety Plot program begins fall of 2017 and goes through September 2018. Members should contact their local Extension Office by July 10 for information with enrollments due to the Northwest Area Extension Office by July 24, 2017, in order that we can have enough seed and metal signs available for Extension agents and leaders to pick up at the Kansas State Fair. New participants will receive a free large plot sign, and five individual variety signs. Returning members receive updated wheat variety names on sticky paper to place on existing metal signs. These will be distributed on Friday, September 8 at the 2017 Kansas State Fair.
Cost for 2017-18 will again be $35.00 to received the five varieties of wheat. This fee is now needed to cover the wholesale costs of the wheat varieties.
This year's participants who are getting ready to harvest their plots should be planning their county fair display for possible qualifying for the Kansas State Fair entry in the 4-H and FFA Showcase Building.
