ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the importance of selecting the right variety for any crop during drought conditions in Texas. According to small grains specialist Rob Duncan, having a diverse set of well-adopted varieties is vital in order to spread the risk during growing season. Duncan also suggests that coleoptile length, early forage production, and growth type must be considered during variety selection.
