Four Tips for Choosing Your Wheat Seed
As fall harvest wraps up, now is a good time to review the successes and struggles of this past season to determine how to improve in the season to come. When looking at seed selection, choosing a strong wheat variety can increase both yield potential and stability, leading to a potentially better harvest.
There are several things to consider when choosing your preferred seed:
- While high yield is a factor, choosing stable varieties that can perform consistently in different environments throughout the years is important.
- Look at summarized data of the past few years, which can help you understand the risks and benefits of your selected seed.
- Choose the variety that, on average, performs the best at locations near your farm during the past several years.
- If planting is delayed past optimum planting dates, consider a variety that will offer strong winter hardiness and the ability to produce tillers late into the spring.
