Wheat Variety Plots

The 2021-2022 Kansas 4-H and FFA Wheat Variety Plot program begins fall of 2021 and goes through September 2022. Members should contact their local Extension Office by July 12 for information with enrollments due to the State 4-H Office by July 23, 2021, in order that we can have enough seed and metal signs available for Extension agents and leaders to pick up at the disignated locations.  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 when the wheat is picked up.

There will be no cost for the program in 2021-22 since the five varieties are again being sponsored by commercial companies.

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.
