These 16 varieties were tested in both the wheat OVT and in the ryegrass suppression OVT. Featherstone VA 258 surpasses the other varieties, ranking highest in both yield and ryegrass suppression. BOPS Coalition Breeding for Organic Production Systems (BOPS) is a joint project by North Carolina State University and in the Rural Advancement Foundation International in the spring of 2009. The project develops field crop varieties specifically selected for organic production in the Southeast.
