The Growth Stages Project
Researchers at the University of Idaho Aberdeen Research and Extension Center tracked the development of "Merit" 2-row Spring Barley and "Whitebird" Soft White Spring Wheat in 1999.
They tracked growing degree days and took photos to help growers make management decisions.
