6.9.20 The COVID-19 pandemic has upended many aspects of life in Eastern Washington including the cancellation of in-person Variety Testing Program plot tours for wheat and barley. But in episode 181 entitled: Clark Neely Leads WSU’s Variety Testing Program into a Brave New World, the new director of WSU’s testing program explains how a series of virtual plot tours, accessible by computer and smart phone, will fill the void. Neely also talks about a new project that has expanded WSU’s AgWeatherNet stations into dryland regions of small grain production as well as his plans to expand research opportunities using the VTP as framework.
