Wheat Trial Notes

Planting conditions in early May were on the drier side of normal, however, seed bed moisture was very good at a planting depth of 1.5″. All wheat varieties emerged very evenly and got off to a great start. The hot, dry conditions through May and early June resulted in the loss of tillers off all varieties as the stress of no rain was evident. PGR’s were a large topic of discussion going into the 2018 growing season. A dry, stressful spring led to the risk of shortened height in all varieties but a PGR application was made at growth stage 32 as recommended. We soon noticed that stress conditions can have a severe effect of crop shortening on some varieties. The effects on yield of a fungicide application were quite variable and I attribute the difference in yield more to field variability from lack of moisture.
