The following tables present results from barley and wheat varietal tests conducted in Virginia in 2020-2022. Small grain cultivar performance tests are conducted each year in Virginia by the Virginia Tech School of Plant and Environmental Sciences and the Virginia Agricultural Experiment Station. The tests provide information to assist Virginia Cooperative Extension Service agents in formulating cultivar recommendations for small grain producers and to companies developing cultivars and/or marketing seed within the state. Yield data are given for individual locations and across locations and years; yield and other performance characteristics are averaged over the number of locations indicated in parenthesis near the column heading. Performance of a given variety often varies widely over locations and years which makes multiple location-year averages a more reliable indication of expected performance than data from a single year or location. Details about management practices for barley and wheat are listed for each experiment location.

Older Specialty Small Grains reports can be found on the Virginia Cooperative Extension Newsletter Archive.
