  1. Corn Production

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4399

    Successful corn production requires an understanding of the various management practices and environmental conditions affecting crop performance. Planting date, seeding rates, hybrid selection, tillage, fertilization, and pest control all influence corn y ...

  2. Small Grain Production

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4398

    The major objective of a small grain production system is the interception, fixation, and storage of sunlight energy. The most important components of such a system are variety selection, timely planting, disease control and adequate fertilization. The ef ...

  3. Soybean Production

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4397

    The major objective of a crop production system is the interception, fixation, and storage of sunlight energy. There are many components of a system that will accomplish that objective. The most important are early planting, narrow rows, productive variet ...

  4. Production of Other Small Grain Species

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4396

    Fertilizer recommendations for the other small grain species are provided in Tables 6-12 through 6-14. Insect control recommendations can be found in Extension Bulletin 545,  Insect Pests of Field Crops.  Table 6-12: Recommended Nitrogen for Small Grains ...

  5. Weed Control

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4393

    Wheat competes well with weeds especially when good production techniques result in an initial uniform stand establishment and when loss of stand due to winter injury is minimal. Effective weed control and prevention of weed seed production in prior crops ...

  6. Insect Control

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4392

    Several different insects can be important on wheat in Ohio. Management of insect pests affecting wheat often emphasizes nonchemical control measures. Hessian fly is controlled primarily by delaying planting until late September or early October (e.g., th ...

  7. Disease Management

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4391

    Disease is one of the major factors limiting wheat yield and quality in Ohio and other Midwestern states. Yield losses as high as 30 to 50 percent are not uncommon in fields planted with susceptible varieties under disease-favorable conditions. Effective ...

  8. Nutrient Value of Wheat Straw

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4390

    The nutrient value of wheat straw is influenced by several factors including weather, variety, and cultural practices. Thus, the most accurate value requires sending a straw sample to an analytical laboratory. However,  book value  can be used to estimate ...

  9. Fertilization

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4389

    A successful soil fertility program for wheat requires knowledge of a field’s yield potential and a recent soil test. The soil test will provide current levels of phosphorus and potassium in the soil and the soil pH. Soil pH will assist in determining the ...

  10. Producing Wheat in 15-Inch Rows

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4388

    Growers are interested in wide-row wheat production due to reductions in equipment inventory (lack of  grain drill) and to allow intercropping of soybean into wheat. Wheat row spacing work conducted during the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 growing seasons indic ...
