The following tables present results from specialty wheat and barley varietal tests conducted in Virginia in 2019-2021. 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, where available. 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. When available, those data are preferred. Details about management practices for barley and wheat are listed for each experiment location.
