OSU provides extensive support for wheat producers through the Small Grains and Wheat
Improvement Team programs. This site is designed to serve as a resource for anyone
interested in small grains production in the Southern Great Plains.
Oklahoma farmers sow approximately 4 million acres of winter wheat each year, making
wheat Oklahoma’s largest cash crop. Fall forage production potential is one of the
major considerations in deciding which variety to plant. Check out our Forage Yield page to learn more about our variety testing results.
Wheat Improvement research in Oklahoma is driven by an interdisciplinary team of scientists
(WIT) housed in OSU's Division of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources, charged
with developing highly-adapted winter wheat cultivars with marketable grain-quality.
