    Wheat harvest date impacts both grain yield and quality. Delaying wheat harvest puts the crop at risk for increased disease, vomitoxin contamination, lodging, sprouting, and harvest loss.

    With funding from the Ohio Small Grains Marketing Program, we conducted wheat harvest date trials for three years. However, none of the years were similar to what we are experiencing this year.

    Wheat harvest is now underway. What is the nutrient value of the straw? The nutrient value of wheat straw is influenced by several factors including weather, variety, and cultural practices. Thus, the most accurate values require sending a sample of the straw to an analytical laboratory. However, “book values” can be used to estimate the nutrient values of wheat straw.

    Wheat harvest date impacts both grain yield and quality. Delaying wheat harvest puts the crop at risk for increased disease, lodging, sprouting, and harvest loss. Last year in Clark County, we evaluated wheat harvested on June 29 (at 12% moisture content) and July 8 (at 14% moisture content). Grain moisture increased between June 29 and July 8 due to 0.58” rain between the two dates.

    A June 27 Update: Wheat is now drying-down and is even being harvested in some parts of the state. Thanks in part to cool spring conditions followed by relatively dry weather during early grain-fill, head scab and other disease levels were generally low in most areas; and low disease severity often means very good grain yield and quality. Stripe rust was our biggest disease problem this year, but outbreaks only occurred in pockets within and across fields.

    Wheat harvest will soon be underway; we often get questions about the nutrient value of straw.  The nutrient value of wheat straw is influenced by several factors including weather, variety, and cultural practices.  Thus, the most accurate values require sending a sample of the straw to an analytical laboratory.  However, “book values” can be used to estimate the nutrient values of wheat straw.

  8. There are three excellent field day opportunities being planned for small grain producers across the state. The three days cover a variety of production issues, nutrient management practices, and small grain uses. Locations are in Pickaway, Wayne and Wood Counties. Be sure to check out the location closest to you! For detailed information visit: https://agcrops.osu.edu/events

    June 1, Pickaway County, On-Farm Wheat Field Day, 19076 Florence Chapel Pike, Circleville at 9 am.

    This season, farmers are at high risk of having a field fire during corn harvest.

    The conditions present during harvest season include dry plant material and grain dust that are highly combustible.  Hot equipment or engine sparks are great ignition sources.  It is not uncommon for exhaust pipes or catalytic converters to exceed 1,000°F. Add a little wind and there is a perfect opportunity for a field fire.

    Protecting grain quality and ultimately the economic value of the grain begins long before the first acre is ever harvested.  This pre-harvest activity is to prepare grain harvesting, handling and storage equipment and structures for the soon to be harvested corn and soybeans.
