Would you believe that some growers are adding winter wheat to their rotation to improve soil health? A healthy functioning soil provides numerous local ecosystem benefits including improved water quality, flood and drought mitigation.
From droughts to flooding, extreme hydrological phenomena are the costliest hazards in rainfed agriculture. A recent journal article explores how a long-term tillage study in northeast Nebraska can offer insights on successfully adapting to future climate changes by adjusting specific management practices.
If you're considering planting winter wheat next fall, be sure to review the corn and soybean herbicide programs you plan to use this spring to avoid rotation restrictions that would limit your cropping options.
