  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Crop Rotation
