Wheat Varieties

The Nebraska Wheat Board supports research and breeding programs with the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and USDA ARS in an effort to improve agronomic performance of varieties for producers, and end-use quality characteristics for millers, bakers and consumers. Different varieties of wheat have different characteristics that make them more suitable to some growing regions of the state over others. NWB encourages producers to consider using Certified Seed and to examine the different sources of data available to them when making decisions on which varieties to plant.

For information on current varieties available and their respective characteristics and performances in trials, the following materials are available to producers:

Nebraska Wheat has been keeping track of state varieties since 1955.
