Montana Spring Wheat Variety Performance Evaluations Released

Montana State University has released their 2023 Montana Spring Wheat Performance Evaluations. These trials are based on wheat variety performance in multiple locations across the state through multiple years. This performance summary compares agronomic characteristics of spring wheat varieties evaluated by Montana Agricultural Experiment Stations and other varieties commonly grown in the state. The trials take place in 11 locations across the state and region, which locally include Sidney (irrigated and dryland) and just across the border in Williston (NDSU, dryland). This data is aimed to help farmers select the variety which performs the best in their area and growing conditions.

A list of quick facts that summaries the results and gives descriptions of the varieties can be found at while a full report can be found at or by stopping into the Richland County Extension Office.
