Considering Planting Winter Wheat? Several Options are Available

This is the time of year when farmers are considering whether to plant winter wheat.

One of the biggest benefits to growing winter wheat is that it typically yields higher than spring wheat. Planting winter wheat can help producers spread out the workload. Even if the winter wheat crop suffers a significant winter kill, producers can plant another crop next spring.

Variety trials can help you choose which winter wheat to plant.
