ND Hard Winter Wheat 2015
ND Hard Winter Wheat 2015
During the 2014-15 growing season, 250,000 acres of winter wheat were planted and 235,000 acres were harvested. The state’s winter wheat yield this season was estimated at 51 bushels per acre (bu/a), which is up significantly from last year’s yield of 44 bu/a. Generally, conditions were favorable for winter wheat development and yield. Yellow rust developed at damaging levels in some areas of the state . Fusarium head blight (scab) was problematic in a few regions of the state, but generally the crop was of a better quality than last year, when scab was more widespread. This publication will aid producers with variety selection.
