February 20 – Yields are available for the first harvest of wheat and rye at the Chilton Research and Extension Center (CREC) in Clanton.

During the latter part of December 2022, Alabama experienced a severe cold snap.  Low temperatures remained in the teens for several days.  As a result, forage species exhibited varying amounts of cold damage.  Due to the significant amount of damage and lack of regrowth, the oat and triticale trials at CREC were not harvested for yield.
