Winning Combination: Winter Wheat and Seed Hawk

It’s an exciting time on the prairies as harvest is getting underway.  The satisfaction of bringing in a year’s worth of planning and hard work is one of the biggest reasons growers love what they do.  For some producers, it also means the beginning of the 2018 crop year with the planting of winter wheat.  Our agronomy discussions earlier this year have talked about the various ways that Seed Hawk technology can improve the performance of wheat over the course of the growing season such as even maturity. It is therefore important to discuss the various seeding tips that pertain to winter wheat specifically.

 

The ideal seeding dates for winter wheat are between September 1st and 15th depending on conditions. Winter wheat growth at greater than the three-leaf stage provides ideal crown development for re-growth in the spring.  However, if the plants have grown too much… Read More »
