Title: The Changing Pattern of Winter Wheat Production in North Dakota
Author: Cox, D.J.
Description: Historically, winter wheat production in North Dakota has been located in the southwestern corner of the state due to winter injury risk in other parts of the state. Winter wheat acreage increased approximately 400% from 1982-85. Acreage growth has been accelerated by recognition that winter wheat and no-till management systems are complimentary. The impact of various tillage practices upon winter wheat success is given. Winter wheat had become a viable alternative crop in North Dakota as the result of changing cultural practices which have increased winter survival rates. High yield rates were derived from winter wheat, especially in the eastern 1/3 third of the state. This shift has has increased the winter wheat height.
