Wheat Variety Contest
1. Review General Rules.
2. The special wheat variety contest can be entered by any 4-H member interested in growing a
4-H wheat variety plot. No acreage limitations have been placed on this contest. 4-Hers should
plant the 5 varieties according to planting dates and rates suggested by respective County
Extension Agents. The contest will start in the fall in each county with the Kansas Wheat
Commission giving each participating 4-Her five varieties (10 lbs. each), that will be planted on
a state-wide basis.
3. 4-Hers with wheat variety plots in the current year may display a wheat booth at the county
fair. Each county may enter booths receiving a blue or purple ribbon at the state fair. Minimum
age for state fair wheat variety booths is 9 by Jan. 1, current year. Harvesting, protein, and
mill-and-bake information will not be required, but can be used by 4-Hers to make their booths
4. 4-Hers should notice differences in germination, seeding vigor, winter hardiness, disease
resistance, tilling ability, color, height, head type and length, yield and grain quality. Members
will gain understanding about marketing quality wheat. This will be demonstrated as the 4-Her
obtains protein or mill and bake information on wheat varieties.
