  2. 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 ...

  3. 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. Insect Control

    https://agcrops.osu.edu/node/4379

    Insect pests in soybean are sporadic but can be yield-limiting when their populations do build. It is difficult to predict when and where insects may become a problem in soybean, so regular scouting is important. Timely foliar insecticide applications at ...
