    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:

    Growers may be interested in wide-row wheat production due to reductions in equipment inventory (lack of grain drill) and to allow intercropping of soybean into wheat. With funding from the Ohio Small Grains Marketing Program and the Michigan Wheat Program, we’ve conducted several wide-row wheat trials.

    Among the questions that we have had to answer thus far this season as we get ready to plant wheat are:

    1- What are the real dangers of planting wheat after wheat?

    2- Now that we have an excellent group of fungicides, can we get away with planting wheat after wheat?

  7. 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

    Wheat helps reduce problems associated with the continuous planting of soybean and corn and provides an ideal time to apply fertilizer and manure, condition the field, and plant cover crops after harvest. With soybean harvest beginning, we would like to remind farmers of a few management decisions that are important for a successful wheat crop.

  10. Hessian Fly-free Date by County
    Author(s): Andy Michel , Author(s): Pierce Paul

    A good rule of thumb for planting wheat is to wait after the Hessian fly-free date.  These dates are predictions on when most Hessian fly adults would no longer be alive and lay eggs in wheat fields.  If planted too early, the eggs can hatch and stunt or kill the wheat plants. Keep in mind that this date is also good for cover crops as well, as mentioned by the Penn St.
