Wheat variety trial plots are located in Cheyenne, Box Butte and Kimball counties. The varieties include both experimental lines and also varieties that have been commercially released, from both public breeding programs such as UNL, and private breeding programs, such as Syngenta and Lima Grain Cereal Seeds. Most varieties are hard red winter wheat, but there are also several hard white wheat varieties as well.
