Title: Research Summary Report...Very Early Seeding of Wheat and Barley
Author: Hoag, Ben K.; Geiszler, G. N.
Description: The article is a research summary report for very early seeding of wheat and barley. Well-drained soils many years are in condition to cultivate sometime between the middle and end of March. This is usually followed by a period in early April when field work is not possible. Because of the increasing size of farms, to operators often find it necessary to plant much later than desired and sometimes too late for optimum crop yield. A study was conducted at Minot for three years, 1966-1968, to determine the feasibility of seeding in March when the soil surface is in suitable condition. This is reviewed in this article. March seeding of wheat and barley accompanied with chemical weed control produced yields of wheat and barley comparable to and in some cases higher than when these crops were seeded in April or May. Test weights also were higher for the March seeding.
