There seem to be strong feelings one way or the other about growing wheat this year, but for our growers more northward, especially in Kentucky and Missouri, planting season is right around the corner. Those areas will typically see solid yield potential in wheat. With corn and soybean prices being what they are—and with July 19 wheat sitting just under $5.50 (as this piece is written)—we’re seeing a number of growers leaning toward getting that crop in the ground. The planting window will open just as soon as we dry out enough and continue through the first few weeks of November.

Here are a few tips to consider when planting wheat:

  • Shoot for at least 1.8 million seeds/acre in conventional tillage; 10 percent more if you will not be tilling; and 20 percent more if sowing.
  • Use a fungicide seed treatment.
  • If you do not use a seed treatment for insects, you will need to use an insecticide.
