Whether grown as a cover crop or for grain, wheat adds rotation to ant cropping system. The seeding rate is 100 – 150 lbs./A for forage and 30 – 60 lbs./A for a cover crop or in mixes. Harvested as a grain crop, it offers the option of double cropping with sorghum-sudan, radishes, or other cover crops.
Tillage helps reduce weed pressure and a firm seedbed helps reduce winter-kill. Plant 3/4 – 1 1/4 inch deep. Increase seeding rates for later planting dates. Use bearded varieties to repel deer.
