Small grain variety trials

The varieties below are recommended based on the results of a multi-year variety trial that is conducted as a collaboration among Auburn University, the University of Georgia, and the University of Florida. In order for a variety to be recommended, it must consistently demonstrate above average yields and also be readily commercially available in the 2019-2020 growing season. Other varieties may provide satisfactory yields, but were either not consistently above average or were not submitted to the Tri-State Variety Trial Program.
