On Monday, June 1st at 9:30 a.m. the Cottonwood Extension District will be having a virtual wheat demonstration plot tour for wheat growers, and the supporting ag industries.


This will be in a format of a recorded Zoom meeting. I will moderate and open the plot tour with an introduction of the background information of each variety plot in Barton and Ellis County and recognize the cooperators. After the introduction our Extension specialist will discuss the individual varieties in each demonstration plot as to their strengths, weaknesses, and adaptation. There will be a slide set with a photo of each variety included in our demonstration plots.


I have put the signs up at each plot with an information sheet posted in a box for the public to look at any time. The Barton County demonstration plot is located 1/8 of a mile North of Susank on the West side of the blacktop. The Ellis County plot is located 2 miles North of the Victoria I-70 exit on Cathedral Avenue.
