Does winter wheat have a fit on your farm? To help you answer this question and understand the current market, we created this handy infographic. This infographic addresses questions like: Why should I grow it? What is the yield return compared to spring wheat? What is the weed, disease and insect pressure like in winter wheat?
If you have decided to grow winter wheat this year, remember that weed pressure from winter annuals can be fierce in fall-seeded crops due to their similar life cycles. Don’t wait for winter annuals to take over your winter wheat. Choose the best pre-seed herbicide that controls winter annuals in the fall and for 21 days in the spring, more than any other pre-seed option – PrePass XC. Apply PrePass XC for the best control of volunteer canola, narrow-leaved hawk’s beard, cleavers and other tough broadleaf weeds.
