Winter Wheat Deadline Approaches

The regular deadline for winter wheat is coming up on September 15th and the extended deadline is September 20th.

There are a couple reasons why producers would choose to grow this particular crop according to Anne Kirk a cereal specialist with Manitoba Agriculture.


"People would choose to grow winter wheat for a few reasons. One is that it is a good rotational crop. And for reasons such as evening out the work load a bit. So winter wheat typically comes off quicker than other crops. So it`s a good way to extend the harvest period, so the work is spread out a bit. It`s also a great crop in terms of controlling maybe, some hard to control weeds because it`s a different growth habit then your other crops. And it`s also good just to have a more diverse crop rotation for purposes such as managing risk throughout your crop rotation and for environmental purposes as well." 


Kirk says that winter kill and other winter injuries are the major issues with growing winter wheat. She notes good management now, in the fall, is very important to successfully grow the crop.
