Preliminary results are attached from the 2013‐2014 official wheat variety trials for commercially available varieties. The results have been divided up between north (Alexandria, Bossier City, St. Joseph,
and Winnsboro) and south (Baton Rouge, Crowley, and Jeanerette) Louisiana due to differences in varieties evaluated. This information should be utilized as a tool to aid in the coming year’s variety
selection. It is important to also consider the 2‐year yield average, maturity, test weight, and disease reaction. The 2‐year average allows for representation on how the varieties respond to a variety of environmental conditions. Additionally, various agronomic and pathology characteristics are provided. These characteristics can be used to gauge variety suitability to individual production systems.
