Due to social distancing guidelines, Washington State University (WSU) Cereal Variety Testing Program has canceled their 2020 plot tours. According to the WSU small grains website, virtual tours will be recorded at Lind, the Wilke Farm/Reardan, Dayton and Pullman.
The annual Lind Field Day has also been canceled. This is only the second field day cancellation in 105 years; the other cancellation was in 1980 following the Mount St. Helens eruption. Video presentations of some of the latest field research findings (including wheat breeding and variety testing) will be made available by WSU within the next month or so. In addition, the WSU 2020 Dryland Research Abstract booklet will be produced in digital format. These videos and articles will be posted on several sites, including smallgrains.wsu.edu.
