Early Planted Wheat Increaes Need for Active Management of the Crop

Fri, 20 Aug 2010 6:07:47 CDT

Early Planted Wheat Increaes Need for Active Management of the Crop According to a report prepared by a group of four OSU specialists, approximately 40 to 60% of the winter wheat in Oklahoma is sown with the intent of being used as a dual-purpose crop. In this system wheat is grazed by cattle from late October to early March and harvested for grain in early summer. In a grain-only system, wheat is generally planted in October, but in a dual-purpose system wheat is planted in early to mid-September to maximize forage production. Planting wheat this early significantly increases the likelihood that diseases such as wheat streak mosaic virus, high plains virus, the aphid/barley yellow dwarf virus complex, and root and foot rots will be more prevalent and more severe.

A team that includes Dr. Jeff Edwards, Dr. Tom Royer, Dr. Bob Hunger and Terry Pitts have assembled a very good report on the problems you may run into with early planted wheat- and a recommendation that you consider a wheat seed treatment in order to battle at least some of these early planted issues that may develop.
