2010 Annual Report
On-farm research included growing experimental, hard wheat lines and appropriate check varieties on farmer’s fields at 5 locations in North Carolina. Locations were in the counties of Ashe, Beaufort, Lenoir, Moore, Rowan, and Wake. These counties span North Carolina from east to west, and north to south. For the 2009-10 growing season, quality of hard wheat was excellent, although the volume weight of grain was below average. The Principal Investigator conferred with the cooperators by phone and email throughout the growing season and visited the field locations 4 times.
