The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service has released its 2018 Wheat Picks list. While some varieties have been promoted from the Watch List to the Picks List, others have been removed.

Southwest Farm Press reports for a wheat variety to make the Picks List, there must be three years of data.

To generate the Picks List, varieties are tested through AgriLife’s wheat variety testing program. In the past, the program was much like a Consumer Reports of wheat varieties, in which Extension personnel chose which varieties to test, and then highlighted good-performing wheats as ‘best buys,’ or Picks.

Varieties that make the Picks List are not necessarily the highest yielders.
