Wheat Variety Plots

The 2020-2021 Kansas 4-H and FFA Wheat Variety Plot program begins fall of 2020 and goes through September 2021. Members should contact their local Extension Office by July 10 for information with enrollments due to the State 4-H Office by July 24, 2020, 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 11 at the 2020 Kansas State Fair.

There will be no cost for the program in 2020-21 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.
