When do you plant winter wheat? There may be an ideal date that comes to mind based on where you farm, but the reality is there are plenty of factors that affect when you actually get the crop in the ground, like the previous crop in rotation, weather, soil conditions, and more.
This episode of Inputs features Emma Dieleman, graduate student at the University of Guelph’s Ridgetown Campus conducting her research under the supervision of Drs. Dave Hooker and Josh Nasielski. She is looking at the effects of different winter wheat planting dates and the use of harvest desiccants on soybeans when they precede winter wheat in rotation, and discusses why this research is timely, her results so far, and what she’s seen from this year’s winter wheat crop already.
