Spring wheat varieties were sown in trial plots at Becker, Crookston, Lamberton, Morris, Roseau, St. Paul, and Waseca and on-farm sites near Benson, Fergus Falls, Hallock, Le Center, Oklee, Perley, Stephen, and Strathcona. The standard seeding rate is designed to achieve a desired stand of 1.3 million plants/acre, assuming a 10% stand loss and adjusting for the germination percentage and seed weight of each variety. Tested hard red spring wheat varieties are listed in alphabetical order in the tables.
