    This year winter wheat yields were very high, averaging 103 bu/acre across five locations in our Ohio Wheat Performance Test (https://ohiocroptest.cfaes.osu.edu/wheattrials/). For comparison, the average wheat yield was 94 bu/acre in 2020 and 86 bu/acre in 2019. High yields were likely due to a long grain-fill period coupled with timely moisture, enhancing grain fill without leading to head scab or other diseases.

    Wet weather has delayed wheat planting in many areas of the state. Generally, the best time to plant wheat is the 10-day period starting the day after the fly-free-safe date. When wheat is planted more than 10-days after the fly-free-safe date, there is an increased chance of reduced fall growth and reduced winter hardiness. The effect of planting date on wheat yield is shown in Figure 6-2 of the Ohio Agronomy Guide.

    Wheat helps reduce problems associated with the continuous planting of soybean and corn and provides an ideal time to apply fertilizer in July/August after harvest. With soybean harvest around the corner, we would like to remind farmers of a few management decisions that are important for a successful crop.

    Growers are interested in wide-row wheat production due to changes in equipment inventory (lack of grain drill and availability of air seeder) and to allow intercropping of soybean into wheat. Wheat row spacing work was conducted during the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 growing seasons with funding from the Ohio Small Grains Marketing Program and Michigan Wheat Program. Overall, wheat grown in 15-inch row widths yielded 1 to 11% lower compared to wheat grown in 7.5-inch row widths.

    If you are planting wheat in 15-inch rows, consider the following:
