2020 Virtual Small Grains Field Day
Due to the health concerns surrounding COVID-19, we had to cancel our annual field day that typically occurs in May at UC Davis. While there is no full replacement for seeing field trials in person, the UC small grains research and extension team has been hard at work developing extension resources that we can share digitally. This page contains video presentations highlighting UC variety selection resources and providing updates on variety development and other small grain research at the University of California. There are also virtual video field tours of our 2019-2020 small grain variety evaluation plots at our Fresno County and Davis (Yolo County) locations.
