Small Grains Variety Demonstration
There is no fee for this event.
Early fall-winter forage production is particularly valuable as it allows flexibility for earlier grazing or increased stockpiling. The goal of the Noble Research Institute's small grains breeding program is to develop cultivars with improved forage qualities, better fall production, improved ability to recover after grazing and better overall forage yields.
Attend this field day to see how well six small grains varieties, recently released by the Noble Research Institute, performed on Jimmy Emmons' ranch in Leedey, Oklahoma. Varieties demonstrated include NF101 wheat, NF201 triticale, Heavy Grazer II oat, Maton II rye, NF402 oat and Bates RS4 rye. Varieties were selected for increased early season forage yields.
This is one of four demonstration field days where you can see how well these small grains varieties grew under different conditions based on variables including rainfall and soil type. See noble.org/events for information on the other dates and farm locations. Note: Check the website for any information about event cancellations due to weather.
