K-State Research and Extension- Clark County to hold annual wheat plot tours
Winter wheat is the predominant crop grown in Kansas, with anywhere from 8 to 12 million acres sown every year and annual production often ranging between 280 and 460 million bushels. These statistics makes Kansas the largest winter wheat producing state in the U.S. Additionally, over 90% of the winter wheat grown in the U.S. southern Great Plains is cultivated under dryland conditions, rendering this region as the largest contiguous dryland winter wheat producing region in the world.
In an effort to research different wheat varieties across the county, K-State Research and Extension-Clark County will be holding their annual wheat plot tours on May 14. There will be two tours. Minneola tour will be at 8 a.m. The field is located at the intersection of CR A & CR 7. Breakfast will be served at the Minneola Methodist Church, 231 Main St, following the tour. The Ashland tour will be held at noon. The plot is located 2mi. West of Intersection of River Rd and CR Z. Lunch will be served at the Clark County Fairgrounds, 1200 S Kentucky, following the tour.
