One focus will be barley and our work there includes reviewing some feed and malting barley lines that we are evaluating. We are also evaluating several fungicide programs on malt and feed varieties. We will also review our wheat varieties and evaluate them for maturity, yield and diseases. Penn State specialists will also provide an update on the current crop conditions.


  • Winter wheat and barley variety evaluation trials, including new varieties.
  • Managing malting barley.
  • Reducing vomitoxin and other disease challenges for both conventional and organic markets.
  • Timing wheat harvest to maximize quality and double crop bean yields.
