Seeing what new research is breeding

Idaho Wheat Commission shows off 45 varieties of wheat on land run by UI wheat-quality labs

Every year, during the brief lull between spring planting and summer harvesting, farmers gather at a local farm test site to see how their wheat check-off dollars are being spent.

Tuesday, about 150 farmers and agriculture agents from around the region met at a plot near Lindsay Creek Winery, where about 45 test varieties of wheat have been grown. The plot has been donated for research by Neil Uptmor of Lewiston. A large sign posted by the Idaho Wheat Commission declares that the test plot is "Wheat Growers' Dollars at Work," and smaller signs stuck into the lush, waist-high wheat announce variety names, such as Stephens, Brundage 96 or Bruneau.
