ELGIN - Local wheat producers gathered at the demo plot near 1st and G St. in Elgin on May 4, for the Oklahoma State University 2018 Wheat Variety Tour.

Led by Heath Sanders, Oklahoma State University Southwest Area Extension Agronomy Specialist, the educational tour provided farmers with research based information about specific plant structure, growth, yields, resistance and disease, while also giving them a chance to view the planted crop up close. "This is the only plot we have in Comanche County," said Greta Meisner, OSU Extension Educator. "It gives producers an opportunity to look at and learn the different characteristics and traits of the varieties we have planted."
