Everyone is invited to learn about the latest news on wheat varieties in our area. 
Once again, K-State Research and Extension, Harvey County, has joined forces with DeLange Seed to have a single wheat plot tour. 
The tour will begin at 6 p.m. Wednesday at Camp Hawk, 1801 S.W. 36th St. 
This is 1 1⁄2 miles west from Old 81 Highway and 36th Street at the Chisholm Trail Outlet Mall.
Doug Shoup, KSU crops and soil specialist, and Steve Ahring, the Delange agronomist, will provide information on the wheat variety comparisons. 
A meal will be served at 6 p.m. at Camp Hawk, and the tour will begin at 7 p.m. 
The field cooperator is Darren Hughes, and the plot is a half-mile south of 48th and Hoover streets, just 2 1⁄2 miles west of Camp Hawk and 1 1⁄2 miles south on Hoover.
This is an opportunity to study new wheat varieties and compare established varieties. 
Mark your calendars and plan on having an enjoyable and educational wheat plot tour. 
Call the Harvey County Extension Office at 284-6930 to reserve a spot for the free dinner.
