  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Seeding Practices

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4387

    When planting at the proper time and into soil that is not too wet, seed should be planted 1.5-inches deep. Row width should be 6 to 8 inches. Planting by bushels per acre is very inaccurate due to variability in seed size from year to year and from one v ...

  8. Planting Date

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4386

    Avoid planting wheat prior to the  fly-safe date  because of the possibility of early establishment of foliar fungal diseases and severe damage by barley yellow dwarf virus and Hessian fly (Figure 6-1). The best time for seeding is a 10-day period startin ...

  9. Land Selection and Preparation

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4385

    Wheat grows well in a range of soil types; however, well-drained soils with medium to fine texture produce the highest yields in Ohio. Adequate drainage is essential; thus, tiling poorly drained fields is important. Plan the crop-rotation sequence far eno ...

  10. Crop Rotation

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4384

    Plant wheat following soybeans. A three-year rotation of corn-soybean-wheat appears to be optimum for sustained yield of all three crops. Crop rotation is the most effective method to reduce pathogen populations that affect the three crops in the sequence ...
