Aaron Esser ,

In 2012–2013, four on-farm tests were established in Adams County, Washington, to investigate the performance of two wheat cultivars, Otto and Xerpha, both with and without fungicide application. Otto is a soft white winter wheat cultivar with moderate resistance to eyespot (strawbreaker) foot rot and stripe rust, while Xerpha is a popular, high yielding soft white winter wheat cultivar that is susceptible to eyespot foot rot and moderately susceptible to stripe rust. This publication outlines the testing procedures and presents results of the tests and comparison, to help wheat growers decide which variety is better suited for their growing conditions.
