Small grain variety trials are conducted annually by scientists of the Louisiana State University Agricultural Center Agricultural Experiment Station (LSUAC) to evaluate grain yield, agronomic performance, and disease reaction of varieties and advanced lines. The trials are conducted at seven LSUAC research stations representative of the major soil and climate regions of the state. Entries are included in the trials based upon previous performance or at the request of the originating breeder or company. Inclusion of an entry in the trials does not constitute an endorsement. The performance trial in north Louisiana is divided by relative maturity into two groups, early and medium-late (normal) to facilitate timely planting and harvest. The north Louisiana early trial included seven varieties (bold font) and five experimental lines (normal font) while the normal trial included 34 commercial varieties and 28 experimental lines. There were 48 entries in the south Louisiana performance trials.
